Brad and Sarah donated all the plumbing for the headquarters of the American Small Business Institute. They had only two or three trucks at the time, but I'll never forget their answers when I asked them, 'How will you measure success?'

Brad said, 'I just want people to be happy. When a person isn't happy, I'll do whatever it takes to make them glad they called our company.'

Sarah said, 'Complete domination of Austin.' That's when I knew Brad and Sarah were going to be an unstoppable success machine. Having married my own counterpart—my best friend—more than thirty years earlier, I was fully aware of what a united couple can do when they hold on tightly to each other.

If you read only one book this year, make sure it's this one.
