Tracy: One of the things I like to ask my guests is what they do to energize themselves, to keep their passion for their work flowing. What are the things that keep you inspired?
Brian: I’ve been married to my wife, Cheryl, for 25 years, and we have three children – two in college and one in high school.
This year I also fulfilled a lifelong dream of writing a song. I co-wrote “Island Inside Me” with Hawaiian artist Anuhea as a gift to my wife for our 25th anniversary. We were thrilled when the song hit #1 on Hawaii radio this year.
Tracy: Awesome! Do you have any final words of advice for us today?
Brian: To successfully run a business, you must build a vibrant culture. A company’s culture is leader-driven and employee-owned, and a healthy culture is the right people and the right processes working in harmony. It’s about attitude and behavior.
Tracy: Thank you, Brian. You’ve given us a lot to think about today and some great material for getting started.
Brian: It’s been my pleasure, thank you for having me.
