Mic Drops Moments

🎤Claude at (04:30 ) - Us, humans, we are like exquisitely messy people.

🎤Claude at (06:40 ) - I came to New York the month later and we just hit it off. It was a Who Ya Know moment.

🎤Claude at (07:58 ) - Creating safety is our obsession. Removing fear, removing cynicism, and people talking smack about one another.

🎤Claude at (09:10 ) - Honey is how we treat people.

🎤Mark at (10:50 ) - Not treat people the way you want to be treated but the way that they want to be treated.

🎤Claude at (12:14 ) - There is nothing that’s common sense right now, especially in this wacky world we are living in.

🎤Claude at (13:05 ) - It is listening. I listen to a lot of people.

🎤Claude at (17:11 ) - I did it.

🎤Claude at (19:14 ) - I go through hard times, I go through dark times, I go through all those times. However, for me, there is always hope and some kind of light.

🎤Claude at (19:44 ) - People wake up every single morning without you and I know it wants us to succeed.

🎤Claude at (20:37 ) - It’s more like, yeah Covid is happening and work is really heavy right now because a lot of people have a lot of raw emotions, and that's really tough for me. So, I better acknowledge that, take care of myself, and get to the gym so that I can be the best me I can be for my family and work.

🎤Claude at (22:00 ) - We have an enormous database of all these companies that are knocking on Gary's door all day long, or knocking on our door. What we promise is an introduction.

🎤Claude at (22:45 )- If we have done some of our homework prior to that meeting, what I will say is like, “Hey Billy, this is not great news and whatnot. However, we know that you’re really interested in cutting video, and here are three places where we can get you a network. Or I will say, “Take some time, go on LinkedIn, find three jobs that you're interested in or three companies, and let's see who we know there.”
