Tweetable Quotes:

"Success in this world is always a matter of individual effort, yet you will only be deceiving yourself if you believe that you can succeed without the cooperation of other people." – Napoleon Hill

"Your ability to create abundant success in the next 5 to 10 years is actually affected by the mindset of the people with whom you are collaborating. Your ability to create fulfillment in the next 5 to 10 years is affected by the fulfillment level of those you are collaborating." – Patrick Carney

"When you think about a mastermind, and you think about pivoting, and you think about everything that we are talking about. The idea is you must surround yourself with brilliant individuals dedicated in supporting you and challenging you. Cheering you on and inspiring you to achieve and use the actual steps to get to your desired outcomes." – Patrick Carney
