“There’s nothing more attractive than a person who’s found their purpose. So many of these founders found that. Even getting to be in the passenger seat and help share their story with a broader audience is a huge privilege.”

“They’re just people[founders]. They may have some extraordinary abilities and have taken some significant risks. But they are still people that are no different than anybody else. “

“If you’re passionate about something yourself, and you’d like to have a show, nothing stops you from doing it.”
