1. “I see rapid growth as a rocket ship. If it’s pointed slightly the wrong direction it burns up, if the foundations aren’t strong it doesn’t get off the platform.” [06:19]
2. “Everybody’s got unique experiences, unique customers that have allowed them to learn how to look after a specific demographic of people. Unique education, unique upbringings, we all have them that perfectly qualify us to create something amazing for a demographic of people that will appreciate it.” [12:53]
3. “Most people have forgotten what they’re passionate about because they traded it in for what’s a good idea right now.” [15:05]

5. “The biggest piece of advice I can give people is focus on working on your business and not just on making the procedures better, but the marketing of your business [as well]. And then move forward.” [24:19]
