Person(s) you most admire (outside of family): I have a friend whom I met later in life working part time in the ski industry. We share a passion for the outdoors. He has been through some difficult times and wrote a book as part of his recovery. I can always run a situation by him and he will take the time to listen and give me a straight forward and sometimes too honest, piece of advice.
