Key Quotes

Not seeing the dots connect shouldn’t stop you from moving forward. -Greg McDaniel

Release ego, pride and fear. The unwillingness to look stupid holds you back. -Matt Johnson

The things that get in the way of success have a lot to do with mindset. Ego, fear and pride are examples of this. Use your mental mechanics to keep your mindset right and lead with value.
