Quotes from this episode:
"You really only have your memories. And if you haven't put those coins in the bank, so to speak, you don't have anything to draw on, there's nothing there. And you get to the point where it's too late and your choices are taken away at some point of your life."
"We didn't become Virtuoso or Signature because honestly, I felt like I could do a better job of putting my clients in good hands (rather) than somebody in a corporate office many, many states away pulling contracts with hotels to put champagne in rooms."
"If you're only focused on price, you've already lost. I want people to focus on value. Price is what you pay, value is what you get. And if you focus on what you get, you can actually get much, much more for the dollars than you would expect."
