Quotable Moments

  • “For our young listeners out there, take the opportunity and look for the experience you can get. If you’re more focused on getting paid now, you’re not going to get as good of pay later.” – K
  • “I tell people all the time that you don’t need an MBA to succeed in business. I also say, an MBA will not in any way remotely assure that you will succeed in business.” – M
  • “There’s 2 ways to be educated and they both happen through experience. You can either get the experience yourself or you can pay for someone else’s experience to be passed down to you.” – K
  • “Profit is not new cars – profit is inventory, new machines, and innovating.” – M
  • “Your suppliers have no reluctance to tell you it just went up 15% and yet we, as the middleman between suppliers and their ultimate consumer, why are we reluctant?” – M
  • “I’m building my company to sell it – I’m not sure whether I ever do it or not, but I want to get it to that position where it could be sold.” – J
  • “Just because there’s a language and a culture barrier there, it doesn’t mean that there’s a talent barrier.” – K
