● Overnight success is like ten years in the making. It was a lot of sweat equity put into it. We had to go through a lot of tears and pain, but it led us on the path to where we are now, living our lives the way we want.

● Anyone can be an entrepreneur, and if you’ve done engineering and you go and become an entrepreneur in engineering, you’re probably going to save time. I went from engineering to entrepreneurship, had nothing to do with engineering, and that took a long time.

● My recommendation to everyone is to start with paid advertising. You’ll start getting phone calls right on day one, and it takes 24-48 hours for ads to kick in.

● If I were to make a recommendation to marketing agencies, experiment with AI, which we do. We always experiment on our websites.

● We don’t do much paid advertising on TikTok or LinkedIn. It wasn’t the niche issues we would be into, but Facebook and Instagram have been around long enough, and everyone has experience with them. I would say Facebook and Instagram are great to advertise.

● If I were to advise a business owner, I would say, you have got to fix your sales. It’s a problem. You are the problem. So, you need to hire someone, and if they’re not willing to go past that point and admit that to be a problem, then there’s nothing you can do as a marketer. Or a service provider.
