I’m up very early in the morning doing work. If I can quantify that as anything, what I would tell you is I’m a family person. Because I’m a family person my family is typically up and active and doing things very much throughout the day, and obviously they have school and those sorts of things. I get a lot of work done before my kids are awake. I get a lot of work done after my kids are asleep. All that kind of non-selling follow-up work the follow-up emails, the running of reports or whatever I’ve got to do. I try to do that either in the early morning hours or in the after the kids go to bed hours and I probably live on 5-6 hours of sleep a night. I take my kids to school every single day. There are many days I’m picking them up from school. That’s just a choice I have made that I’m… I don’t work from 8 to 5 a lot of times. I will spend time throughout the day participating in their lives and then I’ll put in more road work before or after hours to do that. I choose to make that the priority, and that’s why I chose the role I’m in right now so I could be a bigger part of their lives.
