"In order to learn, you have to educate yourself and make mistakes." (10:42) - John Vuong
"Many of the entrepreneurs that are successful, whether they were there were immigrants or whether they're from here, if they've had a bit of a hard scrabbled start... that drive and that hunger is a little bit more there. I think there's maybe even more appreciation of how hard it really is to do well." (5:54) - Jeff Amerine
I think more business owners and founders, if they take a step back from that typical mythology, and they think about what they want to get out of it in terms of satisfaction and self-actualization, all those other things that really give you a sense of being and quality, peace of mind." (23:45) - Jeff Amerine
