My two boys keep me up and night…and our new puppy, Coco.

WHAT’S YOUR VIEW ON MONEY? 

Money is how I keep score of my business ventures. However, it can only provide you with material things and financial security – it cannot provide you with happiness or fulfillment.

I recently traveled all throughout Alaska with my family. 

WHAT’S ONE THING MOST PEOPLE DON’T KNOW ABOUT YOU? 

I was not a good student as a young adolescent. In fact, I received poor grades in high school. I was a really great basketball player, though!
