Curiosity, intentionality, authenticity, attitude, and effort
Rob: "If you're an entrepreneur, if you learn how to sell and you can sell your business and you can teach others how to come in and do that the way you did that... you're more likely to have people stay with you because you're like, hey, I've been there, done that. I can empathize and sympathize with you."
Rob: "When you're curious, you learn. And when you learn, you build. When you build, you need to build with intention. And what intentionality means is you understand that you're doing something because of a why but also a how."
