  • “Most biggest lesson I learned is I am 100% in control my destiny”. 
  • You can take life in your own hands, there are a lot better options for those who are willing to take advantage 
  • Be an entrepreneur and take control of their own life and go see the world. 
  • Having a mentor is important, treat it as your guidance.  
  • Your mentor is not going to push you to the end if you’re not willing to put in the time. 
  • You can spend all this money on mentors, but if you’re not coachable, then it doesn’t matter, you’re essentially wasting your money.
