Being educated, but more importantly, being educable drives business, trust, lasting relationships and the legacy the current generation can always pass on to and learn from the next. It is about the questions, not the answers.
I am involved with the Runstad Center as a way to give back while at the same time learning. Having the Runstad Center in the community raises the professionalism of the industry. It is an incredible leadership group trying very hard to set the table for the next generation.
