Grant’s mother instilled in him that success in life is not always measured by material possessions. Instead, his mother explained that the measure of success is really determined by your willingness to reach out to others and to provide them with sound advice and guidance. That simple concept has been the driving force behind the development and practice of a management style that has caused him to place an emphasis on a “high touch” approach.
Grant’s advice to anyone seeking to accomplish something significant is: understand the importance of networking; establish a mentoring relationship; know where you would like to go; and be committed to your plan.
Grant enjoys exercising on a regular basis, has an annual physical, and enjoys playing sports, especially golf. And, he says, “There’s nothing more important to me than family and friends.”
