- Specifying what I learned at Texas State that helps me most today is very difficult. There is no one thing that definitively helps me on a day to day basis. What is most beneficial to me is the foundation that I built there. It is the footing to every important business decision that I make.
- The best advise I can give to aspiring entrepreneurs is the philosphy I try to live my life by and that is, "Let your yes mean yes, and let your no mean no."- James 5:12. That should hold true when dealing with questions from others and also when you are questioning yourself. Consistency is a key ingredient to the formula for success.
