As one goes through life, he or she strives to be the best that they can be, to make a difference; simultaneously, train his or her children to live in that manner, and become good citizens in their community, with hopes that they too will also make a difference in society.

"For a successful entrepreneur it can mean extreme wealth. But with extreme wealth comes extreme responsibility. And the responsibility for me is to invest in creating new businesses, create jobs, employ people, and to put money aside to tackle issues where we can make a difference." ~ Richard Branson
