Favorite Elbeco Product and Why: The Ufx Polo...a customer once said to me, "you guys screwed up when you created this product...you made it too well and I hardly ever have to replace them." It's well made and hands down the best polo on the market.

What Would You Like to Be Known/Remembered For? Nothing specific, just hope my loved ones smile when they think of me.
Anything Else You Want To Share? "Remind yourself regularly that you are better than you think you are. Success does not require a super-intellect. Nor is there anything mystical about success. And success isn't based on luck. Successful people are just ordinary folks who have developed belief in themselves and what they do. Never...yes, never...Sell yourself short." - David Schwartz, The Magic of Thinking Big (one of my favorite books)
