This weekly feature highlights entrepreneurs, philanthropists and socialites and their meaning of success. These stories are to inspire and motivate you. Our mission is to instill a positive message to perpetuate others to go on and accomplish great things.
What does success mean to you?
To make a living doing something that you would do for free, to have extra time for family and friends, and to be able to participate in making a positive change in the world.
What do you do to be successful?
Listen, be pro-active, and try to think differently.
What is your successful story successful story you would like to share with us?
This is a difficult question to answer, because, often times, for me, success is not measured by crossing a finish line or signing on a dotted line. I see life as a series of events that build on each other, some good, some bad, but all serve as a foundation for the next step. I guess “success” is just being able to move and take the next step….and move forward.
What would you recommend to others to do to be successful?
To be patient and follow your passion, no matter what it is! If you love doing it, you will be successful.
