Where were you born?
What is your favorite TV show?
I like documentaries. One I’ve seen recently was about XXX.
What are your aspirations in life?
To give more than I take. I want to be in a position to pass on the knowledge that I’ve learned. I want to help future business owners avoid mistakes and grow as entrepreneurs.
What is your favorite thing about working in your industry:
I really enjoy interacting with passionate entrepreneurs who find solutions rather than more problems. I enjoy looking at a problem or challenge, identifying quickly what can significantly improve or solve it, and working with a team to find innovative and successful solutions.
What is your biggest pet peeve?
My biggest pet peeve is people in an organization that don’t take accountability or responsibility for their actions. At the end of the day, we all make mistakes. But we should use those mistakes as an opportunity to learn and grow. If you screw up, acknowledge it, rectify the situation and move on. You won’t make the same mistake again!
