“That’s kind of the precipice of what I’d like to do as I get older and move into life is help people connect, whether it’s at a corporation, or if it’s just in life, so I really enjoyed being the, not the boss, but more almost like the older brother or the dad that could come in and be like ‘Sit down guys, let’s have a talk. Let’s work through our problems.’ I don’t think a lot of people do that. I think a lot of people avoid their problems and the last thing they wanna do is sit down and try to face them.” 11:02
