Welcome to our new blog feature, the Monday Kick-starter Quote of the Week. We could all use a little inspiration on a Monday, right? To kick off the new feature, we would like to quote a local Tacoma legend that spoke to auction patrons at the first annual BEST dinner and dessert fundraising auction.

“There are two ways to think about things: Either ‘I think I can do’ it or ‘I think I can’t do it.’ It’s all in the attitude, folks. A positive attitude is everything!”

—Joe Stortini, local restauranteur, philanthropist, and Tacoma icon during the welcome address at the recent BEST fundraising auction at his restaurant, Joeseppi’s.

Wise words Mr. Stortini!
