Mike Anderson – founder and CEO of National Small Business Chamber

"Two heads are better than one. Identify your weaknesses and surround yourself with people who strengthen your skills. It is okay to fail. Move forward positively and learn from every experience and obstacle. Always have integrity and partner for the right reasons. Conditions will never be perfect, take action anyway!"

Jos Dirkx – international brand consultant, strategist and entrepreneur

"Entrepreneurship, self-empowerment, and an awesome group of clients. When those are really in balance, I think that you can really deliver extraordinary work. When I grew up, I attended a kindergarten in Bangladesh where every single kid was from a different nationality. For me, working with different cultures and people from different walks of life is completely normal and it’s the way that our world has been going for a while."
