We discuss why Rick hired Sully as an associate and his biggest fears with hiring a family member. We discuss what the first months were like for Sully and how they kept everything professional regardless of what happened during the day. Rick discusses the time he was battling his inner demons and why his recovery was critical in Sully’s professional career. We also discuss what they do to stay at the top while working fewer hours.
