Key Takeaways:


“Most people just need direction. When you want to become a doctor or a lawyer, there isn't an exact path to do it. Everyone knows exactly what you need to do to achieve that goal of becoming a physician. But in the world of thought leadership, no one had created a path. There's no instruction manual. There was no degree program. No one had done it the same way every time.” -Robin Farmanfarmaian


“Outsource what you are not best at and focus on the top five things that you are.” - Robin Farmanfarmaian
