[08:54] “Once you get out of your comfort zone, you'll quickly realize that you weren't that comfortable.
[16:11] “I have been able to tap into it, and go ahead and see some opportunities that I might not have otherwise been able to, just because I [implemented Profit First]’”
[22:58] “I want to say [implement Profit First] ASAP. If I were to go back in hindsight, when someone [asks] what’s one of the first things…that [I would] do…at the very least get a QuickBooks thing set up, get a bookkeeper set up just because to go back and fix all that stuff retroactively is very complicated, very time-consuming, and very expensive.”
