“When you ask people to tell you about themselves, they’re going to talk. I mean people like to talk about themselves, it’s a natural thing. And so, you start seeing themes across these multiple conversations.” – Brian C. Adams
“[Rich people] are just like your family. They are crazy. They have personalities. They have problems. They have strengths and weaknesses. They just have more zeroes behind their number, but it doesn’t mean that they are not real people who have real problems.” – Brian C. Adams
“If it’s just about the money and if it’s just about the returns, I think it’s very difficult to be successful for more than two generations in a family. I think it has to be more about the culture and your identity and the story and being a good steward for multiple generations of families for a higher purpose.” – Brian C. Adams
