Quotes

"You really need a strong banking relationship or you're just not gonna make it."

(2:00) Heather Nelson

"[Entrepreneurship] will highlight and show you all these gifts, passions, and things about yourself and your abilities that you never knew… but it will also show you the deepest, darkest, ugliest things about yourself. That you've spent a lot of time shoving into every crevice and corner saying, Lord Jesus, please don't let anybody ever see that or know that about me.

(10:15) Heather Nelson

"We've got a world that says you have to be a subject matter expert on everything at 22, and that's just the biggest lie ever."

(23:10) Heather Nelson

"It's not about whether the utilities are bad and solar's good or solar's bad and utilities are good... The thing is there's this amazing technology and how do we work together to utilize this great technology?"

(33:18) Heather Nelson
