Quotes from this episode:
"Own your own brand... The business that I had to sell, cost me a million dollars to lose that business. And the reason why it cost me all that money was I didn't own my own brand."
"Go in an experimental mindset (where) you don't care about winning or losing so much. You care about what happens."
"You've got to value your time to start with. Do I have the time to spend on that (course / program)? Or is it just pretty and shiny and I think I'm solving a problem?"
