Dise Jr., Ralph A.
Dise & Co.
Education: Master’s degree in business administration, Bowling Green State University; bachelor’s degree in English, Westminster College, New Wilmington, Pennsylvania
Toughest Challenge: Deciding to start Dise & Co.
Favorite Quote: For years and years, I’d pick up my Bartlett’s Familiar Quotations and read whatever page I happened upon. There are too many to pick just one.
Important Lesson Learned: Success is a long series of failures strung together over time. If you’re unwilling to suffer failure, you will never experience success.
What I’d Tell 16-Year-Old Me: “Buckle down and do your homework. You’ll have better opportunities when you graduate from high school and college if you get excellent grades.”
Hobby/Passion: Playing guitar and singing
Bucket List: I don’t believe in bucket lists. You need to do the things you yearn to do right now. There may not be another time.
