If you ever get an idea for a product or service and it seems most of us do your next step is to do something to make it real.

Mike Carruthers:
10% of the U.S. population are influencers. They’re the ones that tell the rest of us about new cool stuff.

Mike Carruthers:

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.
