What was the best business advice you ever received?

You can work a lifetime but you can't take it with you. It's the lives that you touch and the people you have impact on that count. And, integrity, faith and family are everything.

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

I'd be flying off aircraft carriers as a Navy FA-18 pilot.

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

In 1993, my wife, Jody, and I started this business from scratch. It turned out very successful and I could not have done it without her.

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

Israel, to visit my spiritual roots and see the old places mentioned in the Bible.
