Mike Carruthers:
Different people have different ideas on how to succeed.

 

Roger James Hamilton:
When someone like Warren Buffet says don’t go out and take risk but do things you understand and then you have someone like Richard Branson who says no, no go out and do amazing things you’ve never done before. They’re actually saying the opposite of each other and they’re both right it’s just that they have different geniuses to get there.

Mike Carruthers:
What would you guess are the biggest image mistakes professional men make?

 

William Cane:
Well the 2 biggest mistakes that men make are they fail to polish their shoes and comb their hair.
