President and CEO in Las Vegas:
"Be Careful Of What You Wish For."
When I was young and dreaming of creating my own empire, fortune and doing it my way, I never dreamed that having ultimate freedom could be so vastly confusing. It was so simple to meander the path of employment. I could wander from one job to the next as I would quickly tired of one job and moved on to another, sometimes working as many as 2 or 3 jobs at one time just to keep things interesting. I found most jobs to be far too single faceted to keep my interest. Taking on the head of a company single-handedly was by far the biggest underestimation of my life. My thoughts were now it will be easier, no more politics and chaos in the workplace. Just clear focus on the jobs at hand and delivering the highest quality product and customer service possible. Overnight I found I was suddenly no longer doing one job I knew really well but now doing a dozen jobs I had no idea what I was doing. My first advice is this: Find a great A/A stat otherwise you will never have time for the details.

President and CEO in Jacksonville:
"Teamwork Makes The Dream Work!"

President and CEO in Houston:
"Hard work pays off."
Work hard, be honest and treat people fairly.
