“I didn't want to worry about money and trying to make money because once you start to make money, then you start to cater to it. And it can be intoxicating.”

“A lot of people say, “I want to be an entrepreneur,” and I'm like, okay, cool, but what problem are you solving? Who are you passionate about serving? Because entrepreneurship as a career title is not glamorous, it’s an incredibly difficult journey.”
