20 Questions with Kyle Hungerford
1. If you could choose anyone, who would you pick as your mentor?
Tony Robbins. He is an amazing human being and all around decent guy. His business acumen speaks for itself.
2. What songs are included on the soundtrack to your life?
Anything from the band “Need to Breathe”.
3. If you could learn to do anything, what would it be?
I’m currently learning to kiteboard. Turns out old dogs don’t learn new tricks (at least not quickly, lol). I’d love to learn how to fly helicopters, but don’t have the budget for it.
4. If you won the lottery, what is the first thing you would do?
Probably buy a boat.
5. When you have 30 minutes of free-time, how do you pass the time?
I’m currently a big fan of learning new things on YouTube or Udemy. Right now, I’m focused on Photoshop and 3D modeling software from Autodesk.
6. If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be?
7. What was the last experience that made you a stronger person?
I’ve been battling Lymphoma off and on for the last 8 years. It’s been both the Best and Worst thing that has happened to me. I lost my first wife to cancer, so I’ve been on both sides of that fence. It either makes you or breaks you. I’m still here…
8. What’s the Best gift you’ve ever given/received?
Best: My mom worked really hard to force us to learn German as kids growing up even though we fought her tooth and nail. I tell her now that it’s the best gift she has ever given me.
9. What would you tell your 13-year-old self?
Stop worrying about what other people think and do more for others than yourself.
10. What is something you learned in the last week?
I’m not as patient a traveler as I used to be.
11. What’s your favorite indoor/outdoor activity?
I’m into triathlons these days. I find that focusing on health and fitness is the only real way that I can fight my cancer. Plus, it makes me feel better all around.
12. At what age did you become an adult?
Still waiting…. I hope to always be a child at heart. I think that the death of my first wife was the first moment where life shifted from going with the flow to really feeling the weight and responsibility being 100% on me happened. That was at 30 years old.
13. What three traits define you?
· Never gift up
14. What is your personal philosophy?
Love people for who they are, where they are and let God sort it out. Life is tough enough without being judged by others. I still believe in right and wrong and will share my opinion when asked, but everyone has to find their truth in their own time. All we have to do is give a crap about each other, even people we don’t agree with.
15. What’s the best meal you’ve ever had?
There’s one standout from my childhood that’s kind of funny. We were on a 4-day camping trip during summer camp and we had just finished a 15-mile hike with heavy packs. After setting up camp, dinner consisted of throwing everything that everybody had into a big pot over the campfire. I remember it being the most delicious thing I’ve ever eaten. Since that time, I’d say it’s been the Tomahawk Ribeye at Halls Chophouse in Charleston, SC.
16. What would you do (for a career) if you weren’t promoting industry leading products and striving to play a critical role in complex projects in the high end residential market?
I’d like to think that being in the Architecture or Product Design field would be very interesting.
17. What advice do you have for college students that will graduate from Business school this spring?
Book smarts do not equal street smarts. Be better at connecting with people than showing them how ‘smart’ you are. And have fun doing what you do.
18. How do you define success?
Finding joy in the misery. Life can be hard, but you can always find joy even in the tough times. Successful people are able to do this and turn things around, even after failure, and come out stronger.
19. What was the last book you’ve read?
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
