Session 9.2: Richard Montañez | #2

When Richard landed his janitor job at Frito-Lay, his grandfather reminded him of the importance of leaving a legacy in all you do. “When you mop that floor, you make sure that it shines so that when people see it they know that a Montañez mopped it,” his grandfather told him. From that point on, everything Richard did was about his last name—his legacy.
