My father taught me many things. He taught me how to tie my shoes, how to treat a bloody nose, and how to drive. He taught me the importance of eating right and exercising, paying my bills on time, and investing my money. He encouraged me to pursue my first degree in higher education and motivated me to make important decisions at a crossroads in my life.
