“You have to unload the terrible stuff that’s in you in order to find the gems. You can’t just sit around waiting for ‘oh this is the perfect moment for me to be creative’.” (5:31)
“Its a discipline, there are no shortcuts. Yes there is some natural talent involved, but at the end of the day you have to put in the work, you have to put in the hours, you have to learn your craft. And I would say that would apply to any area of your life.” (15:51)
“The first part for me around anything to do with finance is what is our thought process, and what are the words we speak out loud and to ourselves? And retraining that. Because that is the starting point for any conversation for anything in your life, especially money.” (22:43)
“As a creative person, you need to be feeding, I use the word ‘need’ there, you need to be feeding what fires you up. That is what is going to set you apart.” (39:21)
“I am sure if I sat down with you we could have an in-depth conversation about photography gear. How it works, why you would do this, how you would light something, everything that you would want to know about photography, chances are you know it already or you are on the path to learning it. That’s what it takes in finance.” (48:25)
“Building a financial warehouse of wealth if you will, of creating the warehouse of wealth for your legacy, starts with knowing exactly where you are today, everything that is going on, and then building outward from there.” (51:34)
