Inspired by the desire to build amazing communities and provide quality lifestyles, he says, “It’s not about the money, it’s about what kind of impact you’re leaving.”

There’s always this fear within me of ‘what can go wrong’? But if I flip that fear it becomes a positive guiding principle for me. I have fear, but that fear should help me overcome the challenges.
