“The first time in front..hearing my own music it’s like I want to do this. If you’re really going to succeed there’s no other way but by doing, making mistakes, and then learning from those mistakes and moving on. If you take the time and learn it, I promise you it will serve you well.” ~~


“It’s super important you know. A lot of people a lot guys get stumped because yeah they want to create a brand, yeah they can create great designs, but when it comes to the business side, one failure they’re done.

Once you get to another level it opens doors to another level. “ Dan Flechman

Because If you take it with a negative notation that’s just gonna keep eating you inside and it’s going to limit your upside. " Manny Coachman


"First of all quit lying to yourself. You haven’t tried everything. So very dangerous words we use are everything, nothing, everybody, nobody, always, never.

“You’ve only got three choices in life: give up, give in, or give it all you got.” ~~ “Over the years that followed, I found that most of the extraordinarily successful people I’ve met had similar big painful failures that taught them the lessons that ultimately helped them succeed.” 37, principals “I saw that to do exceptionally well you have to push your limits and that, if you push your limits, you will crash and it will hurt a lot. You will think you have failed—but that won’t be true unless you give up. Believe it or not, your pain will fade and you will have many opportunities ahead of you, though you might see them at the time. The most important thing you can do is to gather the lessons these failures provide and gain humility and radical open-mindedness in order to increase your chances of success. Then you press on.” 37, p

“There’s always going to have to be an element of luck but I think more important is putting yourself in a business that can be ubiquitous. That can really doesn’t have limits because otherwise, there’s always going to be a grind to it but if the business if it can’t be something that you can visualize every business using or every consumer using it’s going to be tough to scale to be big enough or to have the perceived value to get you to that billionaire club.” - Mark Cuban
