"I've never really seen myself as employable. I've tried a couple of times and done a reasonable job at it, but not a great job. Because, I think with entrepreneurs or business owners, we cut our cloth in a very different way." (02:12)
"I've always believed that you can train someone a skill, but you can't train them a personality.'" (16:25)
"Business is one of the most rewarding, personal growth journeys." (21:11)
"If we allow the business to operate as a parasite on us and our life, it's not a business that's serving us; we're serving the business. (24:27)
"This is what I've said to my clients: 'Trust the process. Step back. Go and enter your creative zone.'" (27:05)
"Zen Money is really flow. Zen Money is about letting go of this idea that it needs to be hard. Letting go of this idea that it needs to be a struggle and that you need to really, really, really work hard to get ahead for the rest of your life." (28:47)
"I think the most important thing to remember is that you can shape whatever future you want. And you can shape whatever future you want right now through your imagination." (30:44)
