What was the best business advice you ever received?
Never miss a local story.
Treat people the way you want to be treated and give people always 100 percent of your attention.
If you could choose another profession, what would it be?
Real estate agent. I've always been interested in looking at homes and the real estate market in general and I like the idea in helping people find their dream home.
What is the biggest risk you've taken in your career?
Leaving the comfort of a corporate job, starting my own business and moving my family to a new place where we did not know anyone and not knowing what the future was going to hold. But it worked out well.
If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you start?
The islands of Mykonos and Santorini in Greece. I studied the classics in college and it just seems the place to visit.
