If you could change one thing in the world, what would it be?
I think I am like a lot of people who can’t stand to see children suffer through serious illness. My wife and I work with the Rally Foundation, which raises money to fund research to combat childhood cancer.
What could you give a 30-minute presentation about with no advance preparation?
The benefits of a free market economy to society. I have been using it to get my kids to sleep for years!
If you were to tell one person “thank you” for helping you become the person you are today, who would it be and why?
I would thank my mother, and I often do. My father passed away when I was 14. My mother was an amazing influence in keeping me focused on being a person with integrity and on creating a better future while not letting me be soft or lazy when I often wanted to be.
