Noteworthy Quotes

"I tend to find that when you come to an industry, you know nothing about, you don't have the limitations that people already in that industry have. And this gives you the ability to sort of think outside the box without having those inhibitions that people in the industry have."

"Just buy properties for passive income, that's what they tell you, right? But would you get into it knowing this is going to be hard work?"

“You’ll never learn if you don’t fail. So take yourself out of your comfort zone and find a way to fail so that you can get better.”
