Speaking with Richard was a real treat for me. The company he started and still leads has had a very positive impact on my son. Richard is a self-proclaimed math enthusiast.

And, as he says, he likes to solve math problems, teach, and build things. So, when he revealed some of his personal challenges in becoming a CEO, they were very different than what you might expect.
