Our family room, where we live, is about togetherness and ease. Nothing in my house is too formal. There are no coasters on tables; the kids can eat Popsicles on the couch if they want to. I let them ride these little cycles we got for them when they were 3 that have rubberwheels and no pedals.

People don’t have to agree with me. They can say, ‘My gosh, I can’t believe I’m listening to this guy. I can’t disagree with him more.’ But at least they know that I’m going to fight for things that I believe in. And I don’t need to be in formal office to do that.
