“Fear really is the big issue. It’s not that you don’t have enough customers, it’s not that your systems aren’t good enough, it’s not that you’re not marketing well. Ultimately, there’s a pretty good chance that all of that comes back to fear that you have.” – Chris Graham

“It doesn’t matter, you won’t get kicked out of the tribe and get eaten by a saber-toothed tiger!” – Chris Graham

“If you have people that are holding you accountable, that is one of the best ways to get over a fear of something . . . to announce what you’re going to do, and to have people that will actively hold you accountable for what you say you’re going to do.” – Brian Hood
