“Trust that your technique is great, that you’re really good at what you do, but understand that your technique only gets you so far. What makes you irreplaceable is that relationship where you can connect on a deeper level.”
“Growth doesn’t always mean it’s growing outward. It may be growing upward and then at some point you have to stop and then start to work on the outward stuff.”
“We work way too hard on getting more people in our chair before asking what we are giving to those who are there now? We Want more partnerships without asking well what are we doing with the partnerships we have today? Sometimes just going deeper with our partnerships instead of trying to get more, more, more, more, is where that long lasting partnership can happen, but also how you can have more responsibility with it.”
