What motivates you to become successful?
“I want to fulfill my maximum potential. That’s really it. Success is just a byproduct of that. I heard someone say ‘You judge yourself based on what you know you can do, others judge you based on what you’ve done.’ I want to make it matter that I lived.”

I'm sitting in Starbucks working on +thankyouaga.in and +Classbag Edu strategies - there's a guy sitting next to me being interviewed for a job at a car dealership & It's got me thinking about how blessed I am & how much I love my companies - including the struggle to make them successful. We've come so far, and we've got a long way to go - but we're better than we were yesterday. cc +Chris Nelson +Philip Alexander Cunningham
