"It was all about student education, student experience, and job placement. The angels that came together, that was their 'why.' That's where I really learned that if the "why" is just to make money, you're going to have a 30% turnover rate every 12 to 18 months."

"I'm amazed how many people are out pitching... yet they really haven't finished the deck, they really haven't put the financial projections together. I always coach them, 'Let's get the basics together.' "
(7:43) - Hall T. Martin
"I think the key is to number one, find what your 'why’ is. Why would we come together? What is our mission? What are we going to do?"
