“To me, it’s easier to answer a need in the moment than showing up on Monday and having 15, now significant needs, that require time.”

“Don’t extend yourself, don’t go out on a whim and think you can make it work. Make sure it works based upon the information and the due diligence you do behind that is paramount.”
