Bialosky Jr., Jack Alan
First Job: I started a Sunday The New York Times route, selling subscriptions door to door at age 11. I started out pulling a wagon with 10 customers and by the time I left high school, I had several hundred customers.
Education: Master’s degree in architecture, Yale University; bachelor’s degree, University of Pennsylvania
Who I Would Call for Advice: I have a great network of partners, mentors and colleagues, younger and older. I’ve always tried to surround myself with people who are smarter than I am, so it depends on what I’m asking about. In general, I talk to my brother, Bill, almost every day.
Best Advice: Regardless of how big the task, you must eat an elephant one bite at a time.
Proudest Moment: Seeing each of my two sons win lacrosse championships ― a NCAA national championship at MBNA stadium and a European championship in Helsinki.
Important Lesson Learned: I learned the hard way that what goes around comes around, and there is never a good reason to be rude to anyone.
