Quotes We Keep In Mind
“Everybody asks lots of stupid questions. So who cares? I had teachers who would never allow me to say, this might be a stupid question. That’s what gave me the fearlessness– to always put myself out there.”
“I thought it was just absolutely off the wall crazy to go from, from nonprofit to finance… but okay, I’ll give it a shot. And so that’s how I ended up in finance.”
“How can I be useful here? Both with my time and my capital.”
