Memorable Moments & Quotes from today’s episode:
4:51 “Thankfully that we have this value for community over competition, and I think that as that was starting to take root, that just helped reaffirm in my mind this idea that nothing bad happens when we share freely with those who need our help.”
7:01 “Believing in abundance, believing that there is more than enough to go around, believing that your growth doesn’t take something from someone, and likewise their growth doesn’t take anything from you, is from my perspective, a much freer and a much more easeful way to do business.”
10:03 “Even if it’s positive change, even if it’s positive growth and you’re moving in a direction that you’re excited about — it’s unknown to you, it’s something you haven’t done before. And so it can feel a little intimidating, it can feel kind of scary. So I encourage you when you’re in that kind of season, to be gentle with yourself, to be really thoughtful about what you’re asking yourself to do, and the ways that you’re putting pressure on yourself to perform.”
35:49 “Instead of us selling our charisma, in a sense we’re selling the transformation, and that’s what people want to invest in, that’s what people want to buy in.
