- During those times of challenges, obstacles, opportunities, and falls is where we develop the most character.
- I like to tell people I got to where I am today, because I changed one thing: my character.
- Information and strategy will definitely move your business up to level. That’s all it is, but character is what sustains you, character is what takes you from where you are to where you want to be.
- At nine or 10 years old when I learned how to build, grow, and scale a business without trying to make it so deep like you need all of this stuff now.
- At a certain level it’s just business, and business is about the numbers.
- Do business, not money and businesses about the numbers, the structure, the strategy, the system, the sustainability…
- If your personal life is a mess, your business is going to be a mess.
- My philosophy right now is nothing, and no one is bigger than the business, including myself.
- You got to want to grow, you got to want to develop, and most business owners and entrepreneurs, we just get caught up in making money and building business and taking the vision to the next level.
- My focus now is how much better can I be today than I was yesterday, and then the second thing, I don’t wake up every day and say, what do I need to do? I wake up every day and say, who do I need to be?
- I tell all of my mentees, when you get an opportunity to sit at the table, it is not your time to talk; it is your time to listen and to learn and answer questions.
- We want what it looks like, but we don’t want to go through what it feels like in order to get to what it looks like.
- Once I conquered that demon, the flood gates opened up, and so I got this theme now I used to say a couple of years ago, I can’t go back and people think I’m talking about, I can’t go back to being broke. No, I can’t go back to being broken.
- Be honest with yourself of what your demon it is. The thing that you have the most difficulty changing, shifting, getting rid of, and once you identify what that is, kill it, murder it, cut it loose. It is in that discipline, that power will catapult you into areas that you didn’t even know existed.
