    Trivia fact: Sam is also a professional auctioneer. Will that come in handy?

    What is your definition of "success"?
    Success is reaching the top of the mountain that others said I could not climb, taking a deep breath while admiring the view atop, and then asking myself, "Where's the next and even higher peak."

    Who do you admire most (personally and/or professionally)?
    Personally: David and Traci Solovey. My parents' tremendous love for one another and their unconditional love for my brother Jon, sister Stacey and me lies at the foundation of my self-confidence, sense of humor, determination and intense passion for life experience. My parents have led successful professional lives as entrepreneurs, but their true legacy is the close-knit family they have cultivated, the values they have instilled in their children and their generoisty to loved ones and the community. My mother and father will always be a centerpiece in my life.

    Professionally: My parents, Donald Trump, Benjamin Franklin and Studs Terkel are all at the top of my list... I also admire Howard Stern. He is the Donald Trump of media and despite his critics, he has remained one of the best in the business for his entire career. Early on, radio station managers told him he would fail and that his innovative approach would never work. Despite tough industry regulations, Howard Stern continues to accomplish his on-air goals with ingenuity and determination. He is incredibly loyal to his employees, and they are to him. Whether you love or hate Howard Stern's on-air persona, he inspires a strong response, and that alone is admirable.

    What cartoon character do you most relate to and why?
    Wil-E-Coyote: He is the most creative, industrious, ingenious, and dogged, and at the end of the day he and the RoadRunner depart as friends.

    Katrina picked the Road Runner. It would be funny to pit Katrina and Sam against each other in a room full of Acme products to see who would prevail and if they would be friends at the end, like Sam said. Is Sam delusional on that, as I certainly don't remember Wile E. and Roady heading for happy hour after Wile E. gets smashed with an anvil.

    Sam is the best!

    All I have to say to the Sam Haters- is we are keeping a list of you- and when you try to board the Sam Band-wagon in a few weeks we will remember.

    "Sam I am"- all the way!!!
