• “People give us feedback when we didn't ask for it… Before getting defensive, before disregarding it, take it in and say, ‘Is there some truth here? Is there something that I can learn from this?’ ” (4:52 - 5:06)

• “The biggest mistake generally, is that they [leaders] hire a team member, and they're not fully utilized in them. And they don't realize that until they're overwhelmed and burned out… It's really important that you need to start this delegation piece even before you have a team member.” (13:36 - 13:51)

• “Whatever it is that you want to do, communicate that with your team so that they can understand the values and the vision of the business so that you’re all rowing in the same direction.” (17:00 - 17:08)

• “Every problem you have, you need to come up with three solutions.” (21:45 - 21:48)

•  “It's really important to have an open-door policy, where your team member feels confident to come and speak to you one about any concerns they have, but also they may be seeing holes in your business.” (25:11 -25:21) 

• “We have this real difficulty letting go because we're used to doing everything for ourselves… Make that shift to say, ‘I'm giving this to you because I know that for me to get to this vision of what I need to do for my business, I need to step up and command.’ ” (34:28 - 34:56)
