Notable quotes from this episode

“Lead by example. Work on your own human potential and grow yourself personally.”

Dermot Buffini

“Connect with other people. It takes you out of your own world and out of your own problems to focus on the possibilities, focusing on the wins.”

Dermot Buffini

“Focus on the wins and remind yourself of the tough stuff you've gone through, because if you've done it once, you can do it again. In fact, you’re a lot smarter the second time.”

Dermot Buffini

“My number one rule, only focus on the solution. Never focus on the problem.”

Tami Bonnell

“It always works better to have targets, timelines, and tactics, but add tenacity, the passion to really stick with it.”

Tami Bonnell

“Always ask questions to constantly grow. What do I need to learn? Who do I need to surround myself with? How can I expect the people who follow me to grow, if I’m not growing?”
