08:37 "There is a big component of winning your clients over, right? You want them to think 'hey I'm here to support you, I'm here to help you, I'm not just here to bother you.'"

08:59 "What I was not prepared for at all was abject rejection over and over again. I was not prepared for people to have preconceived notions of me before I even opened my mouth, that was something that was new to me. And I also don't think of the way people do this job and how much time and attention it takes."

15:41 "One of the things that I have realized and can now point to has been a huge factor of my success is the desire to seek out the uncomfortable. Not just react to it when it arrives on my doorstep and not just to be in the discomfort that is given to me and address it as it's there but to actually go seek it out and practice what it feels like."

25:20 "You gotta know when to stop digging too, right? There's like a balance like, 'ok we're gonna put this one in the lost column,' and that's key too, right? Like as an experiment you gotta find how this works for you, where you're comfortable at and realizing you can do everything right and still lose the deal many times."

25:55 "Just be willing to try something you know is awkward and that it's not gonna be natural, but be willing to try anyway. And if it doesn't work out you still win, you still benefit, because you tried it. And you feel a little less terrified for trying it the next time, it's a win-win either way."
