This week’s Up Close & Personal feature is on Cristy Lockwood. Cristy serves as the President of LHP Capital, LLC.
1. Name 3 people, dead or alive, that you would like to have dinner with & why.
- Jesus – it’s a given.
- Step Dad – he was a wonderful influence in my sister’s and my lives up to our mid-teens when we lost touch due to unfortunate circumstances. I would want to thank him for being such a great role model and caring about us like he did. He died about 8 years ago.
- Robin Williams – he was a talented, funny man that had much insight about life. Laughter is truly the best medicine. Try being mad, sad, depressed, or upset when you are smiling or laughing. It’s hard to do!
2. What’s on your DVR right now?
- Steve Jobs – The Man in the Machine
- Last season’s Game of Thrones episodes – I watch the previous season a month before the new season starts.
- Downtown Abbey – I really enjoyed this show and was sad to see it end.
3. What book(s) do you have by your bedside?
- Delivering Happiness: A Path to Profits, Passion and Purpose by Tony Hsieh, CEO of Zappos about his well-known customer service strategy.
- 365 Day Mensa Calendar Puzzle – not a book, but it is by my bedside and I do one page per night.
- Finance book
4. What are 3 things we don’t know about you?
- One summer during my high school years, I worked 3 jobs…donut shop, movie theatre, and hardware store. Of course, when school was back in session, I had to drop one of the jobs. I chose to drop the donut shop because I didn’t want to give up my free movie perk, and the hardware store sparked my interest in accounting. Working at the hardware store also inspired me to take a bookkeeping class in high school.
- Pink is my favorite color. My mom tells me stories about pink being my favorite color clear back to when I was 2 years old. Hmm…I must have been born loving the color pink. I have to admit though – a pink car, pink hair, or pink house is out of the question!
- My first car was a 1972 Monte Carlo (gray with black top) and the guys loved it. This car ranked up there with the Gran Torino and the Charger. I ended up selling it to a guy I went to school with for more money than I purchased it for.
- I’ve journaled daily for 5 years. It is amazing when I read back my journal, at how true the statement “will it matter in 5 years?” is. Don’t sweat the small stuff. It brings back a lot of good memories too…”oh I forgot about that happening!” and it brings a smile.
