I know this is not an easy job. What drives you?

What drives me is to make sure that my partners or my employees made more money than they’ve ever made anywhere else before and that they are in a happier situation than they have been before.

None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? What lesson did you learn from them?

I would not be where I am today without my wife Rachel. The lesson that I’ve learned from her is — in business and accomplishing amazing things, you need somebody in your corner who is willing to give you tough love. In a way that’s motivating but yet holds you accountable.

How do you push through your worst times?

Simplify things and focus on mini-tasks.
