I am a bit conflicted on which one is more valuable. I’m trying to come to terms with the fact that I have a job and I’m a business expert and business coach in the field of coaching and I am the number one candidate. I’m getting a lot of offers, but they are all really qualified. We need to hire people who have a great reputation.
I think it’s important for our program in many different ways. At the same time, we need to recognize, I guess, the value that some of this is bringing to our program. I know some of this is coming from coaching and other sports people—the value that the NCAA gives in recruiting for the schools and their administrators. But we also need to do more to keep our talent here in the state, to make sure it’s safe and stable to come here to study. We still need to do that. We have no shortage of jobs. We have great jobs for people who want to do these jobs. And we need to attract young talent.
Are you interested in running for governor in 2018?
That would be a very interesting thing for me. I don’t know how that’s going to play out. One can never rule anything out.
Do you care a lot about the president’s Twitter account or are you done with him?
I don’t know him, I have never met him. But maybe when I’m out there, I think about what’s happening in this country, because I don’t know what that would mean or how that’s not going to affect the state of Michigan. I don’t know how he’s going to be in office for five or eight years. But at the same time I’m always trying to learn. I’m always trying to grow and develop, particularly my own political side. And I think that being a business person and someone who has more than 200 positions to fill will help and it’s a nice experience to be able to do that.
Tell me about the new hotel that opened in Detroit. Why would someone in the business world want to work there?
One of the first things you notice about the Detroit Hotel is its high ceilings. The ceilings were a big feature. It’s very high and if you are on a flight, it takes a pretty long time to get up there, so it’s nice to have this high level of comfort. There is the ability to take a nap. All those things have always been part of the attraction for us
