Fail Forward:

When 9/11 happened, none of our clients paid us for three months. It was a very low time for us, but we persevered and became better because of it.

Lightbulb Moment:

It was when I understood that the business is all about people. It is very important to know and be known among the community which you offer your products to… Once your clients like you, the rest is related to improving your clients’ satisfaction.

Success Hack:

Business is all about people. Treat your people well, and they will be loyal to you and the overall vision of the company

Randomness Round:

What is your favorite daily habit: I smile. This is the first thing I do every morning!
