Notable Quotes 

·        Strategic thinking is the baseline of what you go out and execute as a founder. 

·        The big tech platforms, YouTube, Instagram, etc., are not platforms to build your business on; they are platforms to build your audience on. 

·        Your customer base will grow if they know where to find more of your product. 

·        Putting systems and processes in place can help make everything efficient and avoid bottlenecks. 

·        Focus on your self-awareness, know your strengths, and be open, curious, and ask questions. 

·        Letting go and delegating is about getting people in specific roles, nurturing them on your vision, mission, and what you’ve found out on your way, and letting them grow. 

·        The way to learn is to take action anyway.
