Q&A With Byron Rideaux

What are you doing with YOUR life?
"Right now, I am persuing a life long dream of owning my own restaurant. After college, I listened to other people instead of the desires that God placed in my heart and have not been very happy or successful. Last year I decided to step out in faith and do what I should have done 13 years ago. Lost a very important relationship as a result of it, but have been successful in culinary school and my job that pays the bills. So I can say that I have been following God and winning."

How do you define failure?
"I would define failure as giving up. As long as you are trying, you never fail."

Interviewed by Antoinette Robinson 10/10/10

Where do you see yourself in the next 5 years?
"In the next five years I see myself with my own restaurant and catering business. Hopefully with a couple of rental properties as well, but for now, a restaurant."
