Key Quotes:

  • “If there’s something in my skill set, that’s different from what other people have out there, it’s the ability to create the community around the content.” – David Carothers
  • “History is the greatest teacher of what we can expect in the future that applies in all things in life. So the sales game should not be any different. ” – David Carothers
  • “Let me be very clear. I don’t write a book in an effort to make profit off of it. If I did, it would be the wrong book. So let me I want to be very clear, I don’t care where you go.
