“I actually had a year off. I actually got a camper van, went traveling around Australia like a little nomad before I actually got my job. That’s when I felt kind of the most content, the most kind of chilled, calm.”
“I enjoy the challenge that I got from the corporate environment, but it started to become seemy, it started to become stressful. As you go up the ladder in the corporate environment or any job, you get to do less of the fun stuff, and you get to do a lot more of the crap.”
“It’s not just about building another business; for me, it was more about having some kind of financial freedom and time freedom.”
“If you don’t know what you’re aiming for, then you end up going around in circles.”
“For me, I just need to focus where the people are. That could apply to any business.”
“Focus on one channel that you have the most affinity with. Where do you hang out the most? That’s the area that you’re gonna understand the most first.”
