Tweetable Quotes:

  • “One thing I understand that most attorneys do not understand is they were never taught in law school how to be business owners. They understand the policies they litigate and the portion of the policy they litigate in, but the holistic approach is not necessarily always there.” – Adam Czerwinski
  • “It’s an exciting time but it’s a scary time as well. Being an entrepreneur and having that mentality of moving forward to figure it all out really comes through. This is what I signed up for when I launched this agency.” – Adam Czerwinski
  • “Humility is really what I think allows you to keep going. It’s that humility that allows people to bind together and ask for help.” – Adam Czerwinski
