- When I go into a business venture I always start from the legal standpoint and work with my attorneys. If you can mitigate most of the stuff on the front end it helps everything run smoother and cleaner on the back end down the road. Set it up and do it right from the beginning.
- You can pretty much do anything if you understand and learn and know sales. Sales are what help your business grow.
- You have to lead by example. For myself, working at the level and the capacity that I do, it rubs off on people.
- Understanding your why will help determine your outcomes and your drive. A lot of people focus on the how but they don’t really have that why.
- Success is freedom – being able to do whatever I want whenever I want. It’s making time work for me instead of me being a slave to time.
