a�?More than anything I think that ita��s fatherhood. I know I would be a great father. I dona��t want to work this hard. I dona��t want to have all of this and not leave it to my children. I also know that as hard as Ia��m working, doing twenty hours per day, now is not the time. Right now Ia��m enjoying what Ia��m doing. Ia��m enjoying the work. Ia��m enjoying being a bachelor, so eventually Ia��ll get there. Listen, Ia��m 43, so two more years. By 45 you know who the hell you are, right? Youa��ve really settled in at 45 so I think two more years.a�? – Online
