I wonder how many successful men would give credit to the women of their life like this?
If honest, I think the vast majority would.
Where would we be without our moms and wives?
For that matter, where would the rest of us be, without our daughters?
Finally, so much of what I’ve accomplished has stemmed from the immeasurable assistance of two ladies in my life. The first is my mother, a determined, disciplined woman who made personal sacrifices as she struggled to raise my sister and me. She was uncompromising in her expectations, and she instilled in us a sense of independence and the desire for a better life. The other lady is my wife, who shared my vision and through diligence, patience, and love managed to polish off many of my rough edges.
