Quotes from our guest

“You don’t have to worry about going hungry if you know how to hunt. But if you’ve never learned how to hunt, you’ll always worry about getting hungry”

“Most people spend so much time in the books, they forgot you’re supposed to go out and go hunt”

“You’re supposed to fail. You’re supposed to figure it out”

“The ask method: write 5 questions to the right people. Needs wants, fears, goals, what they hate and what they’ve tried then they’ll give you the keys to their wallet”
