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.
