Best advice he ever received: “The best advice was from my grandfather, given to him by his father: ‘Any day as the sun rises and sets in which you haven’t done something positive to move the ball forward for yourself, your family, or your community, you’ve wasted a day!’ In other words, always strive to get better by working hard, every day!”
