Quotes

Everybody's focusing on deals, transactions, staying late, face time, trying to be really quick at responding to emails... I don't want to compete in that arena. I want to do something that's going to blow every other analyst out of the water.

Zach Washam (4:20)

 

"[In entrepreneurship] You're just directly interfacing with the real world, and you don't have the intermediary of your company to protect you from the chaos, to make decisions, or to construct your values." 

Zach Washam (10:40)

 

"When you look at the way entrepreneurs or wantrepreneurs approach the process, there are those that are in love with the lifestyle, they just fall too in love with constantly chasing shiny objects and experimenting and never get to the point of convergence where they're actually building something meaningful."

Jeff Amerine (30:40)

 

 "Right now I define being successful as being honest and learning."

Zach Washam (35:36)
