QUOTES

Steve: "I wanted everybody around me to know that it's not where you're from, it's not what your conditions are, it's where you're at and where you want to be. And then that journey along the way, that's the growth, and that growth is where all the skill sets are and those skill sets are going to be things that nobody can take from you."

Steve: "He said, well, son, if you can get a track and field scholarship cold calling and you can get the results and keep your scholarship, you can sell payroll. And I didn't want to disappoint him so then, yeah, that's pretty much how I started doing sales."
