"Live from a place where you can celebrate other people openly and you understand that when they win, it doesn't take away from your ability to do the same. The minute you can get to that point, you are going to find more success in business and in life because that energy flow is going to go the right things."
"When we compare ourselves to others, we’re missing out oftentimes on an opportunity to build a relationship."
"We actually love competition, but we love it when it's healthy. We embrace it when it means competing for innovation, and pushing each other forward and trying to be the best that we can be."
"There’s a reason you’re doing what you’re doing, and there’s a reason people are seeing it!"
