Quotes

“Because the thing about businesses sometimes is it can be very binary. It either works or it doesn't... It's a balance sheet. It's finance, it's a product market fit. But, when you work with  organic matter, with humans, it's variable. You don't know what you're going to get.” (4:51)

“The train is going, but you're building the train tracks as well. And the train doesn't stop. In my view the train shouldn't stop. Cause that's your business. That's momentum.” (11:18)

“ ...and then also taking cycle time to make sure that what you've implemented you're seeing and bearing the fruits of... and you may not see those fruits within the first 30 days. You might see those in 60, 90, 180 days.” (13:17)

“So there is no [work-life] balance, but I think that you can actually create harmony between both.”  (17:41)

“Get on LinkedIn and connect with every single person. Build real relationships. Read a minimum of five to eight books a month.” (22:21)

“... always reading what's relevant to the problems that you're looking to solve. That's what I've found is beneficial for my education.” (22:45)
