What’s your favorite part of your job?
Observing and learning from my clients. I know a little bit about a lot of industries. Every company has a different culture, every CEO has a different management style and philosophy, yet they are virtually all successful.
Besides the standard necessities (phone, wallet, keys, etc.) what’s something you never leave home without?
My discount coupons for every retail store in the area. You never know when you might have a few extra minutes to see what’s new.
What quote best describes your outlook on life?
The best things in life aren’t things.
