Quotes:

"To start a business, not only do you need an entrepreneurial spirit, but you need the programs from the state and also investors." (10:00) - Kenny Kinley

 

"Finding that cultural fit, where it's people you're going to enjoy working with and there's good alignment and objectives is really important." (12:32) - Jeff Amerine

 

"If you try to hire too fast, then you hire the wrong people, and instead of hiring 35, you end up hiring 45." (16:16) - Kenny Kinley

 

"You still need to meet people and have relationships, but instead of four or five face-to-face meetings, there may be one or two, but then the rest of it, you can do virtually." (23:35) - Kenny Kinley

 

"I would go back and tell myself, don't worry so much about what other people think. It is just a vicious cycle… Through mentorships, relationships, and reading you try to soak up all the information and make the best decision you can and just move forward." (33:10) - Kenny Kinley
