1. IF YOU COULD BE ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD, WHERE WOULD YOU BE?

    Summers in Elba, winters in the Rocky Mountains, fall in Paris. This is a fantasy question, so why not?

  2. WHO INSPIRES YOU?

    Nelson Mandela, with his gift for walking the talk and being able to live forgiveness, something we need more of if the world is to work.

  3. IT'S TIME FOR A SECOND CAREER; WHAT DO YOU CHOOSE?

    For a totally different career, I think I'd like to get involved in international real estate. I would love to renovate homes in foreign destinations and then sell or rent them.

  4. IF YOU COULD LIVE THE LIFE OF A MOVIE CHARACTER, WHO WOULD IT BE?

    Catherine Banning, the insurance investigator played by Rene Russo in The Thomas Crowne Affair. She is bright, she is independent, she travels the world of art, and in the end falls in love with the wealthy Thomas Crowne.

  5. WHAT'S THE BEST BOOK YOU'VE READ IN THE PAST YEAR?

    For Business: The New Culture of Desire by Melinda Davis. It's about what follows “marketing as entertainment.” It sparked lots of thoughts about where the incentive industry should be heading. For fiction: The Da Vinci Code.
