What people aren't talking enough about:
"I think a lot of people are not talking about what they want to do in their lives. It's always easy to talk about things going on in the world, I would like to see people water their own gardens as well. In my own life, I've seen magic happen when I started focusing more on myself, where I want to go, what are the resources I have available, and what do I need to do to position myself to get where I'm trying to go. I hope one of the things that you start talking about is yourself. And elevators! Elevator pitches are real! I can't tell you how many times I've had a 25-second conversation that changed my life. And it starts with being able to pitch yourself in 25 seconds."
