Quotes from the episode

"One hour of my time is now decided by the buyers and sellers and holders of Counsel. So it gives me an indication of how much my clients are willing to pay for my time." [00:10:45]

"If you are willing to take that hit to your personal brand, then you don't actually have to do the work (forced to work for someone)." [00:17:51]

"My objectives are to get more people buying and redeeming Counsel. I don't really care too much about the price." [00:33:33]
