" I teach my employees, on a daily basis, that it's important to remain in control of your feelings regardless of the situation. Life happens and sometimes we are helpless to do anything about it. We must allow ourselves the opportunity to sit back and evaluate the situation before we react. The biggest mistake we can make would be to rush to judgment and live with regret!"

Believe what I do."
