Why did you become an entrepreneur, speaker, author, etc in the first place?
Love business, selling, making things happen. But most of all, love working with people in a common cause!
How do you deal with fear?
Roosevelt said the only thing that you have to fear is fear itself. I view fear as an opportunity. This does not mean that you do not need to be strategic and thoughtful in your planning, actions and execution, however. Fear and the unknown make you smarter.
How do you deal with rejection?
One door closes and another opens. This is what I have learned, you need to just keep pushing forward and realize that you win some and you lose some; hopefully, you win more than you lose!
What’s the name of your company? What exactly does your company do, how do you help people?

Name one of the biggest challenges you have faced and how did you overcome it?
We have had a number of challenges but the biggest in our business are supply chain related — hurricanes, port strikes, COVID, etc. Developing an international supply chain and meeting the demands of our US clients, including Walmart, Sams, Costco, Kroger, Albertsons, Amazon.com is very demanding in terms of both price, execution and delivery.
