“If you could learn how to communicate a product or a service, then you can create any business.” – John Casmon
“That hunger, you can’t teach. You can teach someone how to do different things [but] you can’t teach them passion. You can’t teach them hunger. You can’t teach them dedication. So, if I can show up to the table with those skills, then they can mold me into their way of doing business.” – John Casmon
“You have to be honest with yourself about how you want to spend your time. All I’m saying is think about how you’re spending your time. How you’re actually spending your money and do your actions match up with what you say or your real priorities.” – John Casmon
