– Greg Answers LeapGo’s 10 “Tough” Questions –

Who was your biggest inspiration?
My father who knew exactly how to work hard and play hard.  He even had a saying, “The #1 rule is: have fun”.  Maybe I took it too literally…

If you could be one celebrity who would you be?
Sean Connery.  I mean seriously, he’s cooler and better looking than me and he’s twice my age.

What motivates you to get out of bed every morning?
You mean besides my wife’s loud alarm clock?  I’ve always loved making things better.  Working with LeapGo gives me the chance to help businesses turn their website content into gold.  That’s what I do best and I enjoy doing it everyday.

What scares the bejeebers out of you?
Spiders… all eight hairy legs of ‘em.

What traits make you successful?
I treat everyone with respect and hope for the same respect in return.  And I’m always honest, even if the truth hurts a bit.

What trait do you wish you could shed?
My “FOMS” (fear of missing out) disease.  There are so many amazing things to do in this world and I want to do them all.

What book do you recommend to every businessperson?
The Tipping Point, Blink, and Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell.  You’ve probably read them all, but if you haven’t, do it now.

If you won the lottery, what’s the first thing you would do?
Give all my family and friends $1000 each.  I’m sure I owe them all something.

If you could give any advice to others, what would it be?
It’s important to have a strong work-life balance.  When you’re at work, work your hardest.  When you’re not at work, do anything but work.

How do you de-stress?
I’m drawn to the outdoors.  I have activities for all four seasons.  Skiing in winter, running in spring, beaching it in summer, and hiking in fall.  Maybe I’ll see you out there!
