- The right timing
- His passion and calling
- The need for business coaches
- Understanding different personalities
- Surrounding yourself with the right team members
- “It became apparent to me that Tiger Woods, Michael Jordan, all these guys..they still had a coach. The reason is they were focused on staying healthy.” (10:24)
- “When you’re the business owner or the manager you envision that means you have to be able to handle it all..that that’s part of the gig, but it’s not.” (12:20)
- “A real manager understands you have to manage the people to get to the goal. You learn to talk a little differently to each one.” (15:06)
