“Everybody has a purpose, you just have to find it, grow it, and then go from there.”
“Here’s the thing, even if you’re hiring a qualified professional but you don’t have enough knowledge to manage them and know if they’re doing it right or wrong, you’re still going to be screwed.”
“The flexibility, the financial freedom I’m getting into – it’s amazing, it has great potential.”
“Time is the most precious thing you have in life and once you have control over that, you’ve got it all.”
“Get a mentor to do it right and avoid mistakes. Mistakes in business can be very costly and it can take you down.”
“I don’t see it as a job, I see it as a passion, so I don’t see myself calling it work. I’ll just be following my passion, doing what I love, and I see myself there.”
