“We don’t like learning experiences because that means that we did something wrong. They’re inevitable in business, but we look at it as an opportunity to really meet the problem head on and address it fully.”

“People think there’s a light at the end of the tunnel. When you’re in the middle of the tunnel, sometimes, there’s a train coming to hit you too. But I guarantee, whatever it is, whether it’s a light at the end or a train coming to hit you, it’s always better to be coming towards it at full speed with your solutions than running and hiding from it.”

“You can hustle your way to some financial success, but you can’t hustle your way into a business that’s operational and repeatable.”

“When you shift from the hustle mindset to the business mindset, all the operations stuff and all the numbers becomes so important.”

“A lot of people know their numbers, but not all people know what to do with them.”
