What was the best business advice you ever received?

Watch your payroll. You really have to be hands on and willing to put the time in, otherwise you shouldn't be in business.

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

Veterinarian, or at least something that involves animals. I allow dogs on the terrace of my establishment.

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

Moving to Australia and opening a bed and breakfast. I got homesick and had to go home after a few years. I sold it with profit, it was a huge risk.

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

New Zealand, it's beautiful and the people are wonderful.
