Which business book have you read more than once?

I commonly read a book once and mark it up with notes for future reference. Two books I’ve enjoyed reading are Getting Naked by Patrick M. Lencioni and Lead Like Butler by Judith Cebula and Kent Millard. Both had good leadership insights and an easy read.

I like a variety of places; however, the Aristocrat has been a good place to have a conversation easily and the food is good too. I also enjoy the Café Patachou.

How do you like to spend your free time?

I love being outdoors whether it’s hiking, walking, riding a bike, mowing, picking up sticks, or cutting plants and bushes that are not Indiana native.  After hours of the outdoor activity, I love to cozy up on the couch and read a novel.
