“I worked twenty-five years inside of a corporate giant. But I think the pandemic, like for all of us, changed everybody’s values. So, I want to spend the next half of my career teaching people the lessons that I’ve learned.” (11:27)

“All that matters is our relationships and helping each other. That’s all that matters.” (19:51)

“Instead of net fishing, you should be spear fishing. How do you create the most successful podcast with the fewest number of listeners?” (31:59)

“Leadership is a broad category. Leadership is culture. Leadership is sales. Leadership is profit. Leadership is customers. Leadership is marketing. Leadership is brand.” (34:27)

“I also just think there’s two types of mindsets, a scarce mindset and an abundance mindset. I just do not believe that the podcast I host is smaller because you host your podcast.” (37:57)

“I do not like to kick people when they’re down. If someone deserves to be kicked, I’ll call them up and kick them. And I won’t tell you that I kicked them. Or I won’t vote for them. But I generally believe that if someone is coming on my podcast, my job is to give them a platform where they can share what it is they’re talking about. I’m not a journalist, I’m a podcast host.” (47:10)

“You learn, as a podcast host, bruise hard, heal fast. You cannot serve all people all the time.” (50:41)

“Storytelling is such a valuable skill for CEOs, for CFOs. What is our story? Where are we going? How are you part of that? What is the antagonist? How can you be part of the solution? What does success look like? What does it feel like? Same as a podcast guest.” (54:24)
