What would an entrepreneur say about you?
An entrepreneur would say that I’m a business partner with integrity who adds a lot of value.
What great business story inspires you?
The entrepreneur who is prepared to risk everything, who has a vision, who knows exactly where they’re going and stays the course in the face of setbacks, who gets back up after a fall and goes after what they want, who listens, who knows how to bring out the best in the people around them, who’s a born—not makeshift—leader. That’s who really inspires me and gets my full attention.
