Magical Quotes from the Episode:

“Most of us have learned that the way that you make money is by doing things that are hard or not enjoyable, or that feels like efforting. And the truth of matter is most people’s genius lives in doing the things that come much more easily and doing the things that time passes by, and they didn’t even notice.”

“If you don’t take the opportunities as an entrepreneur, then you’re worse off than people like with the pensions.”

“Most people don’t learn how to treat their business and look at their business, like an investor, or an asset.”

“If the business is dependent on any one person. That’s the biggest liability to any kind of transfer of wealth.”
