Transcription: 
We have never made comments about our children's friends or the parenting styles of their friends. What we've tried to do is to have our children make their own judgments. And I think that we've set an example, we've stressed to them the importance of values, and we have stressed to them our confidence that they will make wise choices in their life. You can't pick your children's friends, and you can't make a perfect world for your children. Your children are going to deal with bad people. They're going to deal with the good, the bad, and they're going to have to make their own choices and their own value judgments. And so we don't try to make decisions for our children; we try to prepare them to make their own decisions.

Al Checchi

Businessman and Father

Al Checchi is the author of The Change Maker, which catapults readers into a world few will ever experience. Entertaining, fast-paced, and episodic, this memoir of an unconventional agent of change provides a lesson in the values of strategic thinking and responsible leadership found so wanting today. With self-deprecating humor and irony, Al Checchi chronicles the meteoric rise whereby his creativity, strategic thinking, and negotiating skills helped transform three major American institutions-Marriott Corporation, Walt Disney, and Northwest Airlines-and led him to challenge the California political establishment as a candidate for governor. Checchi demonstrates that through experience, vision, courage, and force of personality, one person can make a difference and lead others to move beyond their comfort zones and transform our institutions.
