A quotable CEO Mojo Moment:

“I think it’s hard to say ‘no’ to anything as an entrepreneur but it’s really hard to say ‘no’ when there’s money attached to it as well….I learned the hard way…I left a lot of accomplishment on the table in my twenties because I said yes to everything…It’s like having fifty half dug wells. It’s zero value to you to have fifty half dug wells when the guy next door or across the street dug one well to all the oil and is pumping it out every single day”

A quotable CEO Mojo Moment:

“My saying is ‘If you’re not living on the edge you’re taking up too much space’…the truth is that’s part of our DNA on an entrepreneurial level. We’re fear junkies.  We’re not excited unless we’re taking risks and doing things…I often find those fears are dismissed when I have clarity.”
