Q + A with Ben
What is your favorite quote, and why?
“Comparison is the thief of joy” – Theodore Roosevelt
The reason I love this quote is that it’s so easy to compare all of your life to only the good parts of someone else’s life, especially with social media. You can spend your entire life chasing more and never experience the joy of what you have.
If you had to recommend one restaurant to everyone, what would it be?
Super Taco in Clemson, SC. Marinated beef Super Burrito, fresh pico and chips, and thank me later. Also, don’t plan any afternoon meetings.
At age 10, what did you want to be when you grew up?
A meteorologist. My family used to buy me Weather calendars for Christmas and to this day I’m still fascinated by all things weather-related.
