Tweetable Quotes: 

“You have to make yourself scarce, so that you’re more in demand. You have to do that yourself. Just the degree isn’t enough anymore. Just the certification isn’t enough anymore. You have to take it by the horns and take control of your destiny, because nobody else is gonna do that for you,” - Travis Chappell

“You have to go through that pain the first year, two years, three years of learning with a small company. All the ins and outs of growing your business, starting your business, acquiring clients, setting up your digital persona, all of this is not going to be learned in a big organization.” - Ali Awad
