Interview with an Entrepreneur… Part 2
How long have you been involved in your father’s business?

How has is it affected you by having a father that is an entrepreneur?
It had a good and bad affect. It is good to have someone with hunger and drive around you. “You are an average of the 5 people that you are around the most.” At times we have conflicting ideas and opinions, but it only makes both of us better.

Cut off things and/or relationships that do not add benefit to you life.
Could you see yourself ever working for anyone else?
Possibly-It depends on if I feel the situation would add benefit to my life.
What do you do in your down time?
Aside from research, I enjoy hitting the bars with my friends.
