“As far as jumping into business with someone, you’ve got to have a really good relationship and you’ve got to understand that you might have two different philosophies. You need to know that before you actually go into business together.” [15:04]
“Everything I’ve learned up to this point, I still use the same stuff. We just have different vehicles and different tools to do it.” [28:05]
“What do the people in your market want? Offer to help them, for free, and then from there you can communicate with them and help them along their journey.” [29:47]
“Everything that I’ve decided to do hasn’t always worked, but it’s always been about taking action. It’s those moments in time that you make that split decision and something happens.” [46:30]
“Don’t try to figure everything out first, before you start. Just get started or take that next action that is going to help you get to where you want to go.” [54:54]
