“ Once a musician has enough ability to get into a top music school, the thing that distinguishes one performer from another is how hard he or she works. That’s it. And what’s more, the people at the very top don’t work just harder or even much harder than everyone else. They work much, much harder. ”

… Recruiting people to the company and figuring out how to determine if they’re good fit, if the relationship was gonna work and so I waited too long to do some to do some of my initial hiring and then after I waited all that time the hiring is supposed to un-stress you not stress you more and I actually made a lot of mistakes in my initial hiring because I was hiring…
… Yeah I hired some of the right people too but not such a good ratio. Let’s say you, know it’s very very dangerous when you get yourself into a position where you start to have a need, right, like I’m falling apart, stressed out, I really wanna hire you, I really want help.
