What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?: “The best advice I received I found applicable in many aspects of life, from business management to raising kids. It is, ‘Don’t expect what you don’t inspect.’ It’s great advice as long as it’s coupled with self-regulation so it’s not taken to an extreme.”
