“I think for me it’s just probably just bringing more experience, you know I think these past few years it’s been good but you know ups and downs, and I think as a team we’ve we’ve conquered a lot. We’ve grown a lot and we’ve developed a lot you know. There’s a lot of things that’s happening, but at the same time, just our will and our ability to be able to keep our eye on the prize and I think, you know, I’m very comfortable now. I have great teammates, great staff and I think for us it’s just putting everything together and just doing what it do.
