Quotes:

"To start a business, not only do you need an entrepreneurial spirit, but you need the programs from the state and also investors." (10:00) - Kenny Kinley

 

"Finding that cultural fit, where it's people you're going to enjoy working with and there's good alignment and objectives is really important." (12:32) - Jeff Amerine

 

"If you try to hire too fast, then you hire the wrong people, and instead of hiring 35, you end up hiring 45." (16:16) - Kenny Kinley

 

"You still need to meet people and have relationships, but instead of four or five face-to-face meetings, there may be one or two, but then the rest of it, you can do virtually." (23:35) - Kenny Kinley

 

"I would go back and tell myself, don't worry so much about what other people think. It is just a vicious cycle… Through mentorships, relationships, and reading you try to soak up all the information and make the best decision you can and just move forward." (33:10) - Kenny Kinley

Quotes:


“I'm one of 11 kids, so I had to learn to collaborate or die.” (1:45) - Tim Redmond

 

“We've got some people that were struggling making $2,000 - $3,000 a month, and they're now making $30,000 - $50,000 a month in profits.” (11:31) - Tim Redmon

 

“65% of all the people in the country are not going to go to college to get a four-year degree.

“I would've probably had [my younger self] spend more money on lunches and bribing various successful people to hang out with [me] than I did towards trying to build my future through savings and investments.” (23:29) - Tim Remond
