Key Quotes:

  • “My goal with these episodes has been, to bring a perspective that is new and fresh, but it’s something that an agency of any size could walk away with some tangible takeaways, some new ideas, and some things that you can put into practice, every once in a while.” – Katlyn Eggar
  • “At the end of the day, we’re going to create more opportunity for people in our communities that need the best job in the world which we have waiting for them in our offices, and it’s going to change our lifestyle because we’re going to go from just slogging it out every day trying to get out of doing things the same way, to being the coaches, the leaders, and the world changers that we want to be.” – Katlyn Eggar
