“Hashtags help a lot on Instagram, using hashtags that people are interested in.” - @LEAHthemusic [0:15:33]

“It’s called bootstrapping. You hold a pre-launch and however much people buy, there's your capital to get the manufacturing done.” - @LEAHthemusic [0:19:04]

“You got to wonder why people rush headlong into dismissing something that successful. Is it because they’re scared that there’s work involved?” - @metalmotivation [0:30:05]

“We look ridiculous dressed up in excuses.” - @metalmotivation [0:30:22]

“However big you think you're thinking, it’s not big enough and you can’t be afraid to engage in limitless thinking, you can’t. The more limited you are in your thinking, the more limited will be your results.” - @metalmotivation [0:31:32]
