“My parents were young adults (15), at the beginning of the Great Depression, so their lifetime values were greatly influenced by that historical event. Their takeaway? Get out of debt, be frugal and don’t waste anything. Treat every day like it’s your last, and trust God. Lastly, this too shall pass, and we might be better off.”

“Most of us are so blessed. It is our responsibility as leaders in our businesses, families and communities to remind ourselves and those who look to us for reassurance that most of us are incredibly blessed and should focus daily on how we can serve others. We are all here to give, to care, to be empathetic and for those of us with a shared vision for our businesses.”
