A glimpse into the episode.
- “With the rise of marketplaces, I knew I had to think outside the box and get creative.”
- “Time-management, hustling and passion are key.”
- “The word entrepreneurship to me means and represents people who are taking a risk to better their financial state and better the community.”
- “You have to be a special type of breed to be an entrepreneur. I would rather work 16-hours a day and do something I love and enjoy, than 8-hours a day doing something I hate and find boring.”
- “Hard work speaks talent when talent doesn’t work hard.”
