In the face of adversity, how do you decide to keep going?
I keep reminding myself what my mother always said, “When you fall—and you will because that’s part of life—simply get up, take a deep breath, think strategically, and keep moving.” And try not to make the same mistake twice.
Running for political office was my biggest challenge so far. I did not succeed, but I sure learned a great deal about people.
I would have taken music and voice lessons early in my life.
I wanted to be a rock star.

For meetings: breakfast, lunch, or dinner?
It depends: For business short and to the point meetings; for politics lunch or dinner.
I spent a lot of time getting my education part time nights and weekends. During all those years, I gave up a lot of my social and personal life.
Don’t do onto others what you don’t want done onto yourself.
It can be. There must be value in unconventional approaches for people to see why what you propose is good.
Nobody is perfect, and God knows I made a few in my lifetime.
Yes. I want processes and systems to be better, simpler, faster, more efficient, and fun. When you give people an experience, they’ll return.
