Standout Quotes:

  • “The beaten path is for beaten people. So, if you just continue to do the same things over and over again that path is really well worn... people try to be what they think they should be instead of just being who they are. It shouldn't be well worn. Go do something new. [1:10:12] 
  • “You either be the one that no one would ever want to go after or you be the one that no one would even think about going after. If I'm going to target someone to rob, which most violent criminals have a predator pattern that they follow, they're going to watch you. They're going to decide do I really want to do that?” [55:07] 
  • “The average person can do things that they couldn't do before which may be marketing, may be malicious. But, if you take a lot of time curating your personal safety, why not work on your digital awareness and safety as well.” [20:10]
