    The ultimate measure of a leader is the team she builds. As David Oglivy said, If each of us hires people who are smaller than we are, we

    shall become a company of dwarfs. But if each of us hires people who are bigger than we are,

    we shall become a company of giants.

  • Insight #7

    Dont waste a day asking what if. Instead, ask why not and invest in projects where

    the ROI is life affirming and purposeful.
