Episode 015 – Rohan Gilkes

“…thing that makes me most passionate-is the business that we’ve been talking about where my goal is to bring the same level of automation that high-tech companies have for their businesses. It’s normal for Uber to “feel like Uber”. You pull your phone, the car shows up, you jump in and you don’t even think about payments. I want to bring that same level of automation and technology that high-tech startups have to regular local people in Boise, Idaho that are starting a three-person company.”

Episode 014 – Richard Jaffe and Charly Jaffe

“…it’s hiring smart people who learn fast. I think it’s a passion for satisfying customers. Everyone has different skill sets, mine is sales and closing big deals. That’s because I’ve learned to listen to customers–to love customers. I just love satisfying customers. I think everything starts in the entrepreneurship. It’s always about selling. It’s all about you. I always tell our salespeople, “Find out what the customer wants. Give them what they want and they’ll give you all their money.”

Episode 013 – Elise Rorick

“…the value of seeing that artwork in most stories is that they teach us. I think it’s a G.K. Chesterton quote. something along the lines of… ‘fairy tales don’t teach us that dragons exist; fairy tales teach us that dragons can be beaten.’ I’ve always loved that ever since I read it. Like, that’s my mission. My mission is to use my artwork, my stories, my voice, to help other people to tell their stories.”

Episode 012 – Nathan Hirsch

“I learned a long time ago that if you just hire people for skill, a lot of times it doesn’t work out. You hire someone with that five-star review on some platform or they’ve 10 years of experience and then two months later, blows up in your face. You’re like, ‘How did that happen? That person was so talented.’…we don’t need someone to be ‘10-out-of-10’. They can be ‘8-out-of-1’0 or ‘3-out-of-10’ as long as they’re honest about what they can and cannot do, and they’re priced accordingly.”

— Nathan Hirsch

“…my mission is Truth. A big piece of it is Truth. But a lot of it is freedom and connectivity. I think that we as a collective can do a way better job at representing what we are as a species, what we can do, and creating a space where everything–and I mean every fucking thing from a tree to a bird to a human to the waters–are all respected. And we all live in eco-harmony.”

— Ravi Toor

Episode 010 – Nic Lucas

“I was doing a master’s degree with no money–we would have to go and look in the clothes basket sometimes to see if a $1 coin would drop out so we could go have a coffee. We were totally skinned as I say. To read books, we would go to the local bookstore and it was a Borders. They had chairs and we would read books in the bookstore because we couldn’t buy them. I read, which a lot of people have read, which is Rich Dad, Poor Dad. So that book literally blew my mind wide open.”

— Nic Lucas

“My passion is just helping moms see that they’re not alone in their journey; to build a sense of community by sharing my story and what I’m going through and having other women–other moms and Mompreneurs–share their story to create a sense of, “You’re not alone.” and create encouragement, especially around what you’re doing as moms.”

Episode 008 – Liana Ling

“I think we need to tell others around us more about what their superpowers are because it’s hard for us to admit what they are ourselves. I’m glad you have this podcast because I think it’s going to remind me to tell others around me what I think their superpowers are so that we can encourage them to use them to solve problems, because they may not realize that’s what it is.”

Episode 007 – Beckett Hanan

“We realize how easy it is for people to think like, “Oh, I want to be this kind of person.” and it’s not actually who you are. Once you get on this path of understanding who you are at the core of what you really want, you get this whole growth pattern that you’re able to see. And like, “Oh, I’m at this stage, and here’s what the next stage looks like.” And it just made me feel like I actually make sense and I don’t have to try and be like other females to be healthy and awesome.”

— Beckett Hanan

“There are only 3 ways to grow. That’s it. 3 ways. First one, get new customers. The second one, get your existing customers to come back and spend more money. And then the third, get your existing customers to spend more while they’re with you with every transaction. That’s it. There’s nothing else.”
