“I’m really interested in what’s not working currently. You get a much better answer when you start asking, ‘What do you want to be different?’” – Dr. Robyn Odegaard

“If it’s a decision that you can make and then back out of easily, make it, see what happens, and then back out of it if it doesn’t work. If it’s a decision you can’t back out of, then you need to think about it a little more carefully.” – Dr. Robyn Odegaard

“As an entrepreneur we have to wear this armour of resilience. But at the same time, we have to also be incredibly vulnerable to learn and be adaptive to the changes we have to face.” – Tim Hyde

“The whole idea of marketing is to get people who have a problem to want it solved, and like you enough to want to solve it . And then you can just have a conversation about whether you’re a good fit or not.” – Tim Hyde
