Have you ever run an obstacle race? Sometimes you stumble and sometimes you leap gracefully, eventually crossing the line and winning gold. My work life of nearly twenty-five years is just that -grace with a healthy mix of mistakes to laugh at. Through the obstacles and the leaps, there are two ideals I have stood by- Live life PEOPLE FIRST and keep it REGRET FREE. People first led to a lot of laughs, a lot of hands to lift you, and a lot of indescribable experiences; regret free meant converging all your focus to the work at hand and making it a hit in more ways than one.
