Favorite Quote: “Imagine yourself as a living house. God comes in to rebuild that house. At first, perhaps, you can understand what He is doing. He is getting the drains right and stopping the leaks in the roof and so on; you knew that those jobs needed doing and so you are not surprised. But presently He starts knocking the house about in a way that hurts abominably and does not seem to make any sense. What on earth is He up to? The explanation is that He is building quite a different house from the one you thought of - throwing out a new wing here, putting on an extra floor there, running up towers, making courtyards. You thought you were being made into a decent little cottage: but He is building a palace. He intends to come and live in it Himself.”
- C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity

A Note From Wayne: I am passionate about business because much of what takes place in business is reliant upon relationships. Establishing a sustainable relationship should be rooted in true care and concern for another. Throughout the process of developing a relationship, you learn about other people, their needs, their joys, their worries, and you attempt to cater your gifts to their work/life situations in a manner that is beneficial for all parties involved. Business that is conducted well and for the right reasons can truly change the world, one relationship at a time. I am confident in saying this after meeting with so many business leaders during my time with the Baker Scholars who care deeply about what they do, but more importantly, for Whom they are doing these things. Be bold with your actions, successes, and failures because they will have an impact on not just yourself, but the people who surround you daily, and people who you will never know, provided that there is a real passion carrying you through the day.
