[10:27] “ When I started to read [Profit First], he broke it down in such a way that was so easy to understand. All I had to do is like create a spreadsheet, and anytime money came in it divided it for me and I just made my transfers.”
[22:59] “The biggest thing that I always hear people talking about is ‘Oh, it's so hard to set up these accounts, there are so many online banks now.’ It is not hard to set up these accounts—you can have it done in 20 minutes, so stop making that as an excuse.”
[26:56] “As real estate people, we always think that we have to have our money working for us, and putting it in the bank is like a cardinal sin. [We call it] lazy money…it's not lazy money. You actually need that money.”
