Anne Brock, Master Distiller Bacardi, John Dewar & Sons Limited: Being content in what I spend my days doing and the people I get to share my time with. Having busy work weeks doing something I have a true passion for and then busy weekends around and about with friends is all I need.

Danielle Lanza,  Distiller at Philadelphia Distilling: A balanced life! Work isn’t everything, and it is so easy to settle into a grind. Do what you love and enjoy, and share your life with people you love and enjoy. What’s the point of doing anything else?

Jerry Elliott, Brewer and Distiller, ArchRay Resort: My wife and I are empty nesters and we have enjoyed parenthood and continue to be amazed by our children's growth as young adults and professionals.  I think having a career that is interesting and challenging every day but rewarding with a product that you can stand behind is my idea of how another good life begins again.
