The smartest thing I've ever done: gone into business for myself

Best advice your parents gave you: Work hard and be financially conservative (although they thought I was nuts when I continually stretched myself to grow our business).

Your advice to children: Get a great education, follow your parent's advice and know the Lord.

Your most humbling experience: Army basic training

The great thing about tire dealers today is: their entrepreneurial instincts and tenacity.

Your advice to a tire dealer just starting out: Be aligned with a winning marketing group and have enough capital to hang on through the tough times. And put your emphasis and money on quality people.
