“Most of the people we have here are far smarter than I’ll ever be.”
“[After being in business for a long time] you can get stuck, you can get complacent, you can think we used to do it this way, and that is a dangerous place to be. You gotta open your eyes and listen to people around you.”
“Never be afraid to be the dumber one in the room.”
