What would an entrepreneur say about you?
They say I never give up and that I do everything in my power to reach my objectives.
What great business story inspires you?
I’ve met all kinds of entrepreneurs over the past 23 years. In the early 2000s, I watched two shareholders split up who had started out as friends. I witnessed the tremendous courage one of them showed in saving his business and 200 employees. He was engaged in a legal battle for almost two years before he could see the light at the end of the tunnel. He could have given up, but he held on and fought for the future of his business and for the 200 local families who rely on him. He earned all my admiration and respect. Entrepreneurs have to fight for their businesses every day and learn to face factors that are outside their control.
