G. William LaRosa is not just my Uncle. He's my Godfather. I've idolized him for as long as I can remember. Recently, in the midst of a compelling conversation about business, I marveled how intelligent he is. He replied "I'm not that smart, I've just been around." I call that wisdom. It's my honor to share my Godfather's wisdom on this blog.
