Hasco Craver IV is business development director for the City of Newnan.

What's the best business lesson you've learned along the way?

One, have a plan, know where you're going. Know how to get there. Stay true to it but be honest to yourself and keep your plan fluid in that things do change, markets change, interests change, as well as your own personal opinions change. I would invite anybody who is thinking about opening a business or changing an idea as a current business owner to start with that. Know where you're going, put it down on paper, review it as often as possible.

Who has had significant impact on your life and why?

My parents. They instilled the work ethic that has been required to secure strong position and helped me be a strong professional as well as a strong parent. My wife who teaches me every day what it means to be more patient. She's a great blessing to me. While I was studying to get my master’s degree at the University of Georgia I served as an intern at the Boys and Girls Club in Jackson County, Georgia, and the director was very influential on me in how you learn not to sweat the small stuff but don't ignore the things that make a difference. Ultimately, you pick up everything from everyone you meet.

What do you do in your spare time?

When the weather allows me to, I enjoy running. I'm an avid runner. I like to get out and throw the earbuds in, space out and go out on a long run. It's me time. Other than that, I love chasing my kids around and spending time with my wife and our family. Taking our kids to First Avenue Park or kicking a ball around in the front yard, taking them to the fireworks event at the high school or watching them view Santa Claus at the annual parade and watching how neat and magical that is.
