Quotes

“[Working in a family business] has been a struggle for sure.  Clear communication has been our best asset.”  (15:17) 

 

“On a personal level, I think ScaleUp really helped my confidence in making decisions for the business.”  (20:14) 

 

“The actual striking of the coins is kind of the quickest part.  So, you know, 500 to 5,000 pretty much takes about the same amount of time.”  (29:20)
