A father is everything in the world.
Passion is the thing that won't let you sleep at night because you want to get up in the morning and go do your thing.
If you're passionate about something, you can develop the abilities.
Unfortunately, some of the best fathers are mothers.
I grew up without a father.
Don't ever be afraid to hire people that are smarter than you. Just because they are smarter than you doesn't mean they have to make more money.
When you tell your kids they can be anything, you've got to be careful. I told my kids that, and I ended up with a music producer and an interior designer. But they're doing it.
I was blessed to have the guys at Bear Stearns as mentors. They taught me a lot, but most of all, they taught me that there's nothing wrong with selling if you're selling the right product to the right person.
I've never considered selling anything other than profession, but it's more than that. It's one of the highest callings that you can aspire to. Not everyone can do it.
Salespeople are the most important people in any organization. Until a salesperson gets an order, nobody in the company has a job.
The people who care the most about the folks in your community are living in the community. They don't live in Washington, D.C.
I've been saying to people for a long time, 'If you're not doing something you're tremendously excited about, and you're not feeling passionate about it, you're compromising yourself every day.'
I do one thing - I don't do it on purpose - but I always make other guys look underdressed.
One time, I was going to be in L.A. for 10 days for a business conference, and I took eight different pairs of sandals.
I've never been big on sports coats and pants. I'm a suit guy. It makes it clear who's in charge.
I've created the life I wanted.
I say to people all the time, it is OK to fail. Some of the greatest successes in the history of America started out as failures.
Be bold enough to find the one thing that you are passionate about. It might not be what you were trained to do. But be bold enough to do the one thing. Nobody needs to dig it but you.
Passion is everything. In fact, you've got to be borderline fanatical about what you do.
Finding gainful employment to pay for housing is hard for any veteran experiencing homelessness. It's even more difficult for veterans who've also had encounters with police and stints in jail.
