If you could have dinner with one person you regard as a leader, who would it be and why?

John Wooden: Yes, because he was a great mentor and coach, but moreover, because of his unique ability to teach life’s most important lessons through the most routine of tasks (like eating dinner!)

If you could create your own social enterprise, what would it be and why?

I’ve always wanted to see a more efficient platform that pairs senior citizens in need of assistance with individual volunteers willing to lend a hand with daily tasks or simply provide a few moments of companionship; because every person, no matter how young, old, dependent, or self-sufficient, has a story that deserves to be shared.
