Brann

Title: Owner

Company: Lux-Art Silks

What was the best business advice you ever received?

That came from my mother: don't spend what you don't have.

If you could choose another profession, what would it be?

We are in the artificial plants and floral business and in my next life I would be in the life nursery business.

What's the biggest risk you have taken in your career?

Purchasing the land and building Lux-Art Silks. I bought the Lux-Art Silks business from my mother 16 years ago, three years later I bought the land and built the 30,000 square feet Lux-Art Silks building. We also bought the 20,000 square feet next door.

If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you start?

I am very fortunate as in this business I travel a lot to the far east, however my choice would be the Greek Isles.
