Personal Quote:

I really have full confidence in Johnnie's execution. But I think that, personality-wise, a loose analogy of the way we work is something like yin and yang. When Johnnie's being aggressive, I'll say "take things slowly", because if we're both very aggressive, then things could go wrong. So we complement each other very well, in the good times and the bad times. See more »
