John Schnatter, the founder and CEO of Papa John's pizza company, gave a speech at Ball State University's commencement on Saturday.
Among some regularly heard graduation advice (if your dreams don't scare you, they're not big enough), Schnatter explained his three steps to having a good life: "You wake up, you be nice, you kick ass, and you repeat," he said. "It's that simple."
Schnatter added that all graduates should "do nice things for the people you love," including friends, family and the community at large.
