I have been incredibly fortunate to have achieved such success, but I never lost sight of a lesson I learned as a young boy from my Uncle Max Fisher. Max, a devout philanthropist, taught me the impact and influence you can have in making the world a better place. He taught me that with wealth comes responsibility.
