2015 C-Suite Awards presented by Venue & Lead Magazine
What is the most challenging aspect of being leader?
My biggest challenge as a leader is staying focused on a results-oriented work environment. By nature I like to get into the weeds and the details, so staying out of the day-to-day nuances of our company is my biggest challenge.
What is the best advice you’ve ever received?
The best advice I've ever received was that any fool can learn from his own mistakes, but it takes a wise man to learn from the mistakes of others.
What aspects of your personality have contributed to your success?
I am really not a very talented person. So my chief two talents seem to be the ability to communicate and what our staff would say is a rage-like hatred for the status quo.
How do you think your employees would describe you?
Our staff would describe me as a maverick leader who is fueled by purpose and passion.
What aspect of your company are you most passionate about?
I have the great fortune of being able to work for a company whose entire purpose is changing the lives of people in need, so it’s not really hard for me to get up in the morning.
What is the craziest thing you have ever done?
The craziest thing I ever did was quitting a really good job when was 30-years old with a wife, kids and a mortgage to start this business.
