Quotes

“I was busier than all get out, and I really couldn’t hire recruiters quick enough to manage the business.  So fast forward 25 years later.  There are 1,600 plus Walmart vendors here.  And I believe we are responsible for bringing more than 500 of those teams here, and help facilitating close to 5,000 jobs.  It’s been a great run, and we’re very grateful” (5:13)

“When you’re first starting out, you have this vision for this business.  You’ve got to ask a lot of questions.  You have to do your due diligence.  You’ve got to run the numbers and make a plan.”  (25:31)
