Quotes From This Episode
- "I've spent the last 10 years building this career, and building it in a very specific way — in a way that works for me, in a way where I get to do the work I want to do, with the people I want to do it with. It's not all roses and sunshine all the time, but it is very important to me that I have that autonomy."
- "Talent is only one part of the equation. It takes a lot of hard work, it takes a lot of time investment, and you have to learn a lot of little things about marketing, about business, about finances, about accounting. You don't have to get a degree in business, you don't have to get a degree in marketing, but you can't cheat that stuff."
- "The biggest mistake I made was being an absolute generalist when I started out."
- "Taking the time to market yourself, even in that very minuscule way, can make a big difference. And reframing your understanding of what marketing means, of what running your own business means, that's all stuff that can help."
- "Leave things better than you found them."
