Someone at Drexel just asked me a question (since we asked all of them at the annual personal development plan meeting).

So, everyone else in the company answered these questions and I am curious what your answers are. What motivates you and how do you like to be rewarded?

Here was my response:

Customers so happy they wouldn’t consider a new source.  They WON’T LET their friends and family shop anywhere else because of the value we brought to them. That absolutely INSPIRES ME.  RAVING FANS.

Team members that believe and live the above, and are driven, happy and focused to make it happen.


Anything with our 10 core values I truly see live on is incredible.

Positive sale numbers with margins we need to make this all possible.

And above all…

If we do the above we can/will help the community, giving back gives me goosebumps, its why we exist…it’s my true calling.
