A. Raspberry Chocolate Chip
Frozen Yogurt

Q. Who is your greatest role model?
A. My
greatest role model is an amalgamation of a number of wonderful people I have
met and worked with over the years.   I have learned something from each of
them and woven that characteristic into a “role model” persona that I try to
emulate.  

Q. How do you define success?
A. Regardless
of the context, success for me is measured by whether those I love would be
proud of me.

A.
Resilience

Q. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would
it be?
A. On a cruise ship, it is just too hard to pick a single place.

Q. What’s your kryptonite?

I hate it when people dont' follow through on their commitments, but
nothing is worse than a tornado.

most relate to?

Q. What is your biggest regret?
A. I seriously can’t think of one.   I’ve certainly made mistakes, but I
have learned from them and the experience contributed to who I am today.  
So no regrets, just lessons learned.

Q. What do you consider to be
your greatest accomplishment?
A. Writing this first book.  

Q. What is your best advise to people whom look up to you and your success?

A. Well, first of course would be to read my book 🙂

View your career as a quilt, with each new experience being an opportunity to
add a square.  Seek those experiences out and accept the challenges with
confidence.
