WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE SOMEONE THINKING ABOUT STARTING A BUSINESS RIGHT NOW? Go for it! Be smart about what you want to do, and be fearless!
HAVE YOU EVER WORKED WITH A NOTABLE PERSON OR CELEBRITY? IF SO, WHO? I once danced with a member of the Wu-Tang Clan but not at work.
WHAT ARE YOU MOST LIKELY TO BE DOING WHEN NOT WORKING? Working on 10 different do-it-yourself projects simultaneously.
WHERE DO YOU WANT TO BE FIVE YEARS FROM NOW? Sitting here at my desk at Madeline Ruth. Maybe filming our Bravo Channel hit fashion-hunters show titled "Madeline Ruth."
WHO WOULD YOU RATHER SPEND A COUPLE OF HOURS WITH: WARREN BUFFETT, DORIS BUFFETT OR JIMMY BUFFETT? WHY? Spending time with Warren or Doris would definitely be an enlightening experience, but I'll have to go with Jimmy. There's no doubt that he knows how to have a good time.
