Key Quotes:

“We all have to be able to adapt. And thankfully for us, we have some things in place, such as, quote, bids, and void phones, all the stuff that I think years ago, you would say, these are non-negotiable.

“If you don’t have these things, then you’re not really running an agency.” – Christopher Cook (12:04) 

“I am not quite a staunch believer that you shouldn’t take payments in the offices…I think that’s an opportunity to build a relationship.” – Christopher Cook (13:00)

“Just forget what you know, and build what you need.” – Christopher Cook (18:01)

“I want my people on a keyboard less and dealing with humans more, and VA’s allow you to do that.” – Christopher Cook (29:01)

“We all are different in our own spaces. But we can certainly recapture quite a bit of time, with some of the efficiencies that we’re going to be able to pick up in the neon environment.” – Christopher Cook (33:04)
