At this moment we’re standing at the bank. We be closin deals. With Joseline I can say this, I’ve seen alot of women in my day as far as business goes – she is going to work seven days a week, so I respect that. As a businessman I respect that, I value that.

I’m doing this because I have an eye for talent and I know what I believe in and I know what the people want to see and it’s paying off.”
