I rarely deal with boredom these days. I used to spend a lot of time saying I was bored until I realized there is always something I could be doing.

I'm totally formed by my mother's interest in fashion. As a Hungarian immigrant, she couldn't afford clothes. She made all her clothes from patterns. It was not dépassé to make your own clothes, it was a respected skill and it was financially expedient. I learned that doing it yourself, having self-discipline and working went hand in hand. To work passionately at something is the key. I'm fortunate and blessed to have had, for the most part in my life, the privilege to work at something I'm passionate about.

My dad, he worked rebar, an ironworker.

Successful people are simply those with successful habits.
I believe the reason for my early independence is sport, through which I learnt at an early stage to take care of myself and be disciplined.
In business, I think the most important thing is to position yourself for long-term and not be too impatient, which I am by nature, and I have to control myself.
