BIOGRAPHY:

  • Has seen a lot; at 71 years old, he’s had four wives, eleven grown children, and sixteen grandchildren.
  • Says much of his wisdom simply comes with age; you’re never going to pick up a book and learn “wisdom,” you have to live it.
  • Where was he when he was 20 years old? “When I was 20, I was a follower.”
  • Stopped being a follower, going with the flow when he “realized it didn’t work for me.”
  • Says that once you feel like you’re done “exploring,” that means you’re in the place you need to be, doing the thing you need to do.
