Key Quotes:

“If we’re going to focus on the negative, it just takes the legs out from under us to be able to move forward and have that positive momentum to win. I truly love to win more than I hate to lose because I know we’re going to lose sometime. Just keep getting out there and winning.” – Dale Langehennig

“If I’ve got to have a disclaimer on every single thing we do, I’m gonna find a better way. There’s got to be something better than this.” – Dale Langehennig

“When that obstacle is in front of you, don’t go to the right or the left, or stop.  Go straight through it and you will find the lesson that obstacle is teaching you. When you lose staff or that one major account or maybe things are happening in your family, you learn from that to do better.” – Dale Langehennig
