(6:14) I want to be able to do something different in my lane and give out the game while asking for nothing in return.
(9:05) If your content is good, if your message is good, the audience will find you.
(13:23) When you run with a certain circle, you have to step up to the plate.
(13:45) You have to position yourself to be able to at least keep up.
(14:46) I can be whoever I want to be, and I’m fine with that.
(16:56) I see the crowd that I rock with and if I’m going to stay in that crowd and not get passed up, I got to live by it.
(18:12) Be around people who allow you to be the best version of you. Don’t try to conform ‘you’ to something else.
(26:10) The great thing about content is when you create so much, you have so much content to put on other platforms.
(29:21) The candid conversations are gems.
(33:10) It’s really about understanding what you solve.
(34:46) It’s really about feeling, understanding the pain points and just producing, pressing that mute button and going to do whatever you want to do, because somebody is going to appreciate it.
(35:05) So you just have to build that body of work.
(37:03) I’m really big on not feeling as if I’m repeating myself because each day that I say it or each week that I say it, I say it differently.
(38:18) People are ready to receive your information at different times and different days.
(39:24) If you treat it different, that’s why you’re not consistent because you can’t be consistently fake.
(42:40) We have to move within purpose and not move because everybody’s on it.
(46:28) You’re not growing because you’re consuming. You’re not growing because you’re staying on the same level. You’re not growing because you’re comparing the wrong things.
(49:18) We can either continue to complain or we can create platforms that allow to show the truth or what we deem as the truth.
