One Powerful Quote:

8:11: “When we talk about collaboration, I think the first hurdle we need to overcome with this amongst operators, we see this nationally, is there is a fear mindset, very much, and they need to get the abundance mindset. They need to getaway from this scarcity. There is enough for everyone, and it’s only through working together that the strength and collaboration is going to drive the industry forward on a professional level as well. They need to look beyond themselves and their localized communities I think.”
