“We all like to be unique, we like to be valued, we like to be complimented,
and we like to achieve things, for ourselves, our family, our communities, and our society.
We still must find a way to achieve our goals and desires, to leap as high as we can.
Business, as an expression of human aspiration and achievement, mirrors these same goals.
It is about being great, about achieving something, and sometimes even about changing the world.”
