  • On The Difference between an expert and a thought leader: “An expert is someone who knows something. They're smart. But unfortunately, experts are a diamond dozen. There are lots of people who know something about a subject, but a thought leader on the other hand is someone who's known for knowing something by a group of people that care very deeply about what it is that they know something about. So thought leaders are rare and valuable."
  • The Importance of Business Purpose: "Business is not about dollars. It's about people. When you use your business to solve problems for people, you earn the right to make a profit and you fulfill your purpose."
