"I'm a big believer that things happen for a reason, and things come to you for a reason…if you work really hard, it pays dividends," he said. Walzog credits his parents for his hard-working spirit. "Their 'dividend' was not necessarily huge amounts of cash at the end of the day, but they built and created a really sound family. There was something to be proud with that," he said. "So you put your head down and work really hard. You work with purpose and good spirits about it… something will happen for sure."
