Here is an interview with Jim Raman:

Describe what you do: I am blessed to be able to transform people's smiles with braces or Invisalign and thereby raise their self-image and self-esteem. Helping a child who hates their teeth have a smile they are proud of is amazing.

3 words to describe you: Ambitious, dedicated and unfiltered.

Favorite hobbies: Weight lifting, cooking and jet-skiing.

What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? Personally, my children are my biggest source of pride and pleasure. Professionally, having achieved my level of education and buying a practice and growing it by over 100% in the first two years.

What famous person reminds you of your teammate? Jenny McCarthy.

What scares you most about traveling? Traveling to places where Misti may not be safe (she tends to stand out in a crowd).

What excites you most about traveling? Seeing places I may have never otherwise seen and experiencing the history and culture of other societies.

Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on The Race together: Our biggest challenge will be not bickering with each other over insignificant things like we often do at home. If we can maintain good teamwork we will be very tough to beat.

Pet peeve about your teammate: When Misti is stressed out she often snaps at me even when I am not the cause of her stress.

What country and place would you most like to visit and why? There are so many on my list. Italy — beauty and history, Australia — Great Barrier Reef, South Africa — safari in Kruger National Park (or any African safari) and Egypt — pyramids.

What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other than winning one million bucks)? I think it will be an amazing experience that we can share with our children when they are grown which will teach them to follow their dreams.
