Mr. Robert E. Chisholm, FAIA, NCARB, graduated in 1973 from the University of Florida with a Bachelors in Architecture and in 1977 from the University of Miami with a Masters in Urban Design.

“I believe that any human being if they set their mind to something without selling out their value system or their integrity or their beliefs, they can just about achieve anything they want. But anything and everything that you undertake will require an incredible amount of effort and time and perseverance. You have to earn it, there is no easy road but you have to enjoy the trip and you have to balance everything and you have to think as I mentioned earlier that your wake does not overturn any of the adjacent boats because you have to think of others as you go up the ladder or down the ladder. And you have to be able to look everyone you encounter later on make sure that you look at them and they look you with both a smile on your faces because you have to set a good example all the way – going in and coming down… Enjoy life because you only get one shot. This is not a dress rehearsal”…[Listen for More]

“somebody told me when I was getting going two pieces of advice which I have treasured always and I have repeated so many times. This gentleman said Ryan starting a new business that’s fantastic, I’m proud of you, is going to be a long journey but he said you have got three things. You have work, you have family and you have friends. Choose two, you are only going to have time for two. What is it going to be? Obviously, you choose work and family. That’s how I have had to choose where my time goes. And that was really illuminating for me in terms of how little time will be available and how big of a lift it is to start a business. Second piece of advice that put out there is same person told me in my commute home after a long day at work, let’s say I get 15 minutes in the car on the way home. He said you have got to treasure that 15 minutes, you have got to take that 15 minutes relieve your stress, get home to whatever home is for you and find your inner peace. Because that 15 minutes is your 15 minutes to recharge for your day really begins. And you walk in that door at your house because your wife and your family are all waiting there for dad to be present. And a lot of times of you don’t have that recharge and 15 minutes on that commute home you are not going to do what you need to do when your day really begins which is being that father and that husband ”…[Listen for More]
