“I think about all the times I really became a better person or a smarter person it’s because of something that was very hurtful, or painful, or an unpleasant experience.” [5:10]

“I think you shouldn’t just not try because you have to pay your dues.” [8:25]

“I think a big part of finding what’s right for you is stop confining yourself to a path that you’ve been convinced is the path.” [9:30]

“The universe may like the law of attraction, but it likes a good hustle even more.” [21:44]

“There’s no tips and tricks. There’s just a lot of work. It’s a lot of work. It’s a lot of focused work. And that’s the biggest message I can drive home is that of course there’s practices and things you can do, but you need to stop making excuses. You need to put your head down. And you need to make a plan. And then you need to execute the plan.” [25:38]

“If you’re not truly in tune with your biggest teammate, which is yourself, there’s no way you can succeed. You need to know yourself really well.” [31:38]

“Impact is not just affecting millions. It’s affecting the one or two people that get impacted with creative solutions.” [45:17]

“If you mix creativity with hustling hard, any job position, anything you want to become is possible. A webinar is an online event that is hosted by someone broadcast to a select group of individuals online. (A webinar is sometimes also referred to as a “webcast”, “online event” or “web seminar”.) You should learn about webinar software reviews here. Show people what your value is. And then they’ll pay you for your value.” [47:23]
