"You know from the beginning if somebody is a good listener. It doesn't matter who is right if it is the wrong idea for the business. So being successful is more important than being right. Putting your ego aside and really taking a minute to process what somebody else's idea is — even if you are sure that yours is the very best."

"Entrepreneurs need to work 24-7. There are no office hours. There is no right time for the pipes to break in your first location. There is no good time for an emergency trip across the country because you might have found your second location.” 

"Things that seem impossible or would have caused me to stop running forward or might have kept the business at a certain level — those aren't problems for Elizabeth. There are different obstacles that seem crazy for each of us, so when I can't carry the ball any further because I have hit a wall, that's actually where she picks it up and vice versa. None of the things that haunt either of us are problems for the other.”
