Quotes From This Episode
- "You can really learn leadership if you do this right... and because I saw myself changing, my friends changing, I decided that that was something that I wanted to pursue."
- "I knew that I wanted to help people. I didn't know, how. When I learned about leadership - that became a passion and I connected both things."
- "That's my call to action...I had to do something about it. Because I was only talking about it. I was only telling people, 'hey, this is why you should have a dream.' But I never taught them how to have a dream."
- "I want people to stop and evaluate what's happening. Now. Then go and make a conscious decision of what comes next."
- Book: Enjoy the Ride: Reflections and exercises to get to know yourself better, make conscious decisions, and enjoy the journey to your dreams.
