Learn to be useful so that you can provide value and band together with others. The more, the better. Organize. Diversify, so that you have many specialized skills to draw from — doctors and engineers come to mind. If you want to be a survivor, get good at practical things, and working with others.

I think we can fix America by...
We've headed downward in our inspiring possibilities, such as immigration reform and America’s ability to attract the best and brightest in the world, investment in our enviable higher education system, and America’s overall innovation edge in next-generation technologies, relative to new global competitors such as Japan and China. We need to be realistic about the challenges we face, but let’s also set our sights beyond the negative headlines and have a real discussion about the more significant factors and choices that will unlock the best possible future for the country. It’s up to us the ordinary folks; our elected politicians don’t seem willing or even interested.
My most influential mentor is...
I have had many mentors, all of whom influenced me. It would be difficult to single one out as being more influential than the other(s). Some have impacted my growth as a person, and some have affected my growth on a professional/business level. It all comes down to the nature of the relationship - a two way trusted relationship where the mentor and mentee will learn and grow together on a personal and professional basis is the ideal objective.
