Founder/Board Chair I Talk To Strangers Foundation

“Crazy is the beginning of greatness before others call it greatness.”

HOW WOULD YOU DEFINE A MAVERICK?

“Someone who is crazy yet purposeful.  It’s the skill, bold, let’s do something new but this is somebody that you trust.  This is somebody who’s brave enough to go against the grain and maybe do what other people were thinking, but to do it in such a way that people will have faith in whatever the outcome will be.”
