Mic Drop Moments:

🎤Rich at (03:03 ) - The way you respond when you don’t get that promotion. The way you respond when you’re unhappy where you’re working. That sticks. That’s a personal brand. You could leave any job but your personal brand stays intact.

🎤Rich at (04:33 ) - They are studying what happens and even though you may never see them again. That doesn’t mean that they don’t have a connection at another company.

🎤Rich at (06:04 ) - Even in negative situations, what is, I don’t like to say silver lining, but what is a positive. Can you transfer into a positive byproduct? And if the answer is yes, it’s your duty to do something about it.

🎤Rich at (10:53 ) - I like to do what’s called ‘collect the dots then connect the dots.’

🎤Rich at (12:18 ) - Collect the dots and connect the dots. I think that’s the best approach you can do because it forces you to be unselfish and then all of a sudden, like what you’re trying to manifest comes back full circle.

🎤Trevor at (13:00 ) - Guys, he has a top 25 podcast.

🎤Rich at (15:35 ) - You just run into the opportunity. You can’t deny it. Don’t turn your back on it and just go for it.

🎤Rich at (20:50 ) - It’s literally all about taking your brand into your own hands, demonstrating to the world that you’re an expert in something, and who it benefits can be tenfold. But as long as you’re doing it, you’re just going to continue to grow and enhance your business acumen.
