[12:56 - 13:07] "The world needs your gift. The world needs your talents. And if you hold back and you're waiting for the right time or the right moment, you're doing a disservice to the world."

[25:56 - 26:05] "Because if you can serve them super well, they're going to be able to introduce you to somebody that's like them, that would resonate with you and with your brand."

[31:00 - 31:30] "Picture one of your most favorite projects from six months ago or a year ago, five years ago, whatever. How does that compare with what you're doing today? It doesn't compare. You're like, oh my gosh, I can't believe that we thought that was our best piece ever. You know, it was like, it's embarrassing. Right? We all feel like that. So, the thing that you might perfect today, in a week, in a month - whatever - at some point, it's not going to be good enough anymore."
