“I wanna be the opposite of those people that I’ve encountered who have caused me pain at some point in my life – 05.10

“What I have to offer people is bigger than restricting myself to one company, and working for that company for the rest pf my life, and knowing that every single person that I touch, no matter where I am, no matter who they are, that I have something valuable to offer that is going to change someone’s life” – 05.20

“I’ve developed a saying recently which is ‘I am not for everyone, and everyone is not for me, and that is ok” – 08.20

“There is a point where you have to say ‘let it go’ in order to be able to give and in order be your best self.” – 13.35

“What would happen if I did rock the boat? What would happen if I said this isn’t right and I give my reasons, and they make sense?” – 18.40

“Everything is a day by day basis. If you do it one day at a time at least you are biting of what you can chew in that moment – 21.40
