Listen to what your customers are saying, listen to what their needs are, if you want to grow your platform in the right ways and be able to, you know, pinpoint and provide a product that’s going to solve a problem.” – Scott Knowles
  • “If you’re out there producing on a day-to-day basis, or you’re an underwriter or whoever you may be, embrace the technology that’s out there, you know? Don’t close your mind to what type of technology can help you. Don’t be afraid to make the investment.” – Scott Knowles
