Tweetable Quotes:

  • “It’s great if you’ve got a goal, and it’s great if you’ve done market research, but if you don’t show what the behaviors are that are gonna help, that’s not a business plan. It’s called a list of goals and some market research.” – David Carothers
  • “This is obviously the time when everybody’s doing resolutions and trying to get everything in line after the first of the year. I think a lot of times if you don’t have those action items and the how behind it, it turns into one of those gym resolutions.” – Kyle Houck
  • “I would tell you to crack out those freshly written business plans, get to work, and figure out what your day looks like. You’ll be amazed at how much money you can make if you just get yourself into the routine.” – David Carothers
