Quotes from Episode:

  1. And a lot of times it’s a blessing, because you realize exactly who you are, and not the perception of who you think you should be.
  2. If you’re not a leader, that’s fine.
  3. Don’t start writing your story with a beginning in mind. Know the endpoint, then come back and start writing the beginning.
  4. I will take “consistently good” over “occasionally great” any day of the week.
