Ron’s personal mission statement is “to brighten the lives of everyone I meet”. This simple, yet powerful statement encompasses so much of what Ron desires in life. “We should always pause and consider how our actions affect others. It takes a long time to develop trust in a relationship, but just seconds to destroy it. Our interactions with others define the type of person we are, and ultimately how successful we can become.”
