One word to describe your work environment: Teamwork

Rules to live by in business: Surround yourself with the right people in the right seats. Read books, hire an executive coach, continue to raise the bar. Stay mildly uncomfortable at all times. If you’re the smartest guy in the room, run for your life.  Wake up absurdly early, preferably 2 hours before you have to be anywhere 

If you could invite one person to dinner (living or dead, but not related to you) who would it be and where would you go? Andrew Carnegie. He gave away 90% of his fortune. He had humble beginnings like myself but learned how to live a life of no self-limiting beliefs. 

We would probably have a pretty deep dinner conversation. 

What is your dream job? I would probably be a talent agent. Think Jerry Maguire
