The best invention in the world is: The airplane.
My greatest skill is: Networking/public relations (or so my assistant says).
I’m most inspired by: The leadership of Jesus Christ.

My biggest advice for new entrepreneurs is: To remember to keep your priorities in perspective—faith first, family, and then career.
