[14:35] “That's one of the reasons that actually helped me transition into the Profit First mode…You spoke to a very specific demographic, and you were very specific on the types of problems that this industry faces that are quite frankly very, very endemic.”
[30:48] “You're not going to be able to scale without a team, so having really good hiring systems and processes is really key.”
[33:53] “I think now more than ever, with the uncertainty of the market and the changing economy and interest rates…it's important to run a tight ship. Now you have to have a really well-oiled machine that's going to make it through whatever times [we are in]…Be ready to make quick and decisive decisions.”
