Key Quotes:

  • “I teach my children that in the heart of every compassionate capitalist society is this, you find the needs, and then you fill them. If there’s a genuine need that somebody has out there, you do anything and everything that you can to fill it, to serve them, to love them to care for them.” – Grant Botma
  • “I’m the same person, whether I’m here in this podcast, whether I’m at the office, whether I’m at home, it’s a whole lot easier to live my life that way. And my kids see that and I try to do my best to model it for them. And it’s fun to have that type of mission or approach in life because your family supports you in ways that make a huge, huge impact.” – Grant Botma
  • “I think work is beautiful. I’ve actually believed that we were designed and created to work. And it’s one of the reasons why we enjoy thinking about work or even doing work from time to time, right? It’s a lot of fun at times.” – Grant Botma
