I’m in awe of artists. My grandmother and sister created magnificent works of art, but I couldn’t even draw a Coke bottle. In third grade, I was required to take an art class and failed miserably, earning an F.

In college, I took an art appreciation class and gained an immense love of art. I came to realize my skills relate to business, so I admire art instead of creating it.
