Quotes

"There's this fallacy of protection and security in corporate jobs... I mean, really the only security you can have is for yourself." (2:39)

 

"There is some emotion around this [multigeneratinal business plans] when they thought it was going to be a legacy business. But, their legacy can continue, because if you can extract finances, you can extract money out of a sale, then you can fund what's going to be the next legacy project for your family and the next generation." (11:29)

 

"What we've seen is the necessity for dissemination of information and helping business owners get through crises." ( 14:33)

 

"[Work-Life balance is] just an ebb and flow...Cause it's never balanced." (27:04)

 

"I always say that I would have told myself, you don't have to do this all on your own." (28:42)
