Personal Quote:

One of the people who made a huge impression on me early in my career and who was also kind of a master to my apprentice was a woman named Lilia Skala. She said to me "You know, Jeffrey, you're good, but you must work hard. Success will not drop out of the sky like a ripe apple. You must work!" One of the best pieces of advice anybody ever gave to me. See more »
