“First is what I call work-life harmony. There’s no such thing as work-life balance because that automatically assumes that those are two competing forces. And I always remind people including myself, that if you want to build success, the grinding, the hard work, the sacrifice, that is a must. There are no freebies.”

—Danny Hwang ’06
