What is something most people don’t know about you?
Several years ago, I was on a sailboat in the Grenadine Islands. On the last day of the trip I had a medical issue classified as ICD-10-CM Diagnosis Code T63.621A. It’s an interesting yet painful story. Ask me sometime.
What motivates you to get out of bed in the morning?
I love the early morning and quiet time. I learned early in life not to worry about yesterday. You can’t change it but you can make an impact today on your family, friends, coworkers and clients.
Choice of words of wisdom to live by?
Love God and love people and everything else will take care of itself.
