The best advice I ever heard is … “It’s better to be prepared for an opportunity and not have one, than to have an opportunity and not be prepared.” — Les Brown

My three most recommended books are … The Davinci Code, by Dan Brown; Can’t Hurt Me, by David Goggins; and The Energy Bus, by Jon Gordon.

To me, success means … the ability to help others reach their fullest potential.

People who know me might be surprised that I ... don’t have a spleen.

My biggest pet peeve is … chewing with your mouth open.

Everyone in Amarillo needs to experience … watching the Sod Poodles play at Hodgetown.

If I could change any one local thing it would be … during the summer eliminating all of the flies.
