What’s the best part of being a small business owner?
The opportunity to channel my values into a tangible, positive force for good. I’m still waiting for the mad cash and long vacations though.

What responsibilities do you feel as a business leader in your community?
We need to set an example, have high standards, and execute to those standards. This applies not only to our work product, but also how we treat our staff, our vendors, and our clients. My reputation is everything to me. If something in our work doesn’t feel 100% right, it’s wrong, and we need to rethink the solution.

Do you have a favorite mantra or quote to keep you going and inspired?
