“From childhood I have had it drummed into me by my parents, my life experiences, and my own work: You can do good work and you can do good. I’ve learned that life is not a zero-sum game that requires that we take everything and leave nothing in order to succeed. I subscribe to the concept that through innovation and creativity we can all add to the global pool of resources. In fact, Peter Diamandis authored one of my favorite quotes in Abundance, ‘Make more pies.’ I strongly believe that in doing so, one can have a positive impact on the world and make a solid profit while doing so.”
