CEO Mark J Lindquist Enterprises, Inc.

Action and growth are everything to me. When I was 19, I heard a speaker say, “Life is all about having a story to tell and an adventure to take.” I’ve thought about that wisdom many times throughout life’s journey and have understood it to mean that if a person has a story to tell, then you must have recently done something fun, great, or worthy of mentioning. If you always have an adventure to take, that means you are looking forward to something coming up and will have an opportunity to grow. Nearly 20 years after hearing that speaker, that wisdom has led me to have a pretty darn fun life.
