“I hear at least once a day that someone has never met anyone like me. I embrace my uniqueness, my weirdness, and continue to just double down. If you don’t you are just a boring human being” – Justin Breen
“Most of my days are spent talking to the top entrepreneurs on the planet. And what separates those at the top level is they execute. They don’t make excuses. They make the investment. And when you hang out with people that execute, they introduce you to more people that execute and make the investment” – Justin Breen
“In my own entrepreneurial journey there have been many times where I’ve delayed and over-thought decisions and never really got to where I wanted to get to. And there’s other times where I’ve taken steps where I don’t even know where I’m going yet, but I took the first step and created momentum” – Trevor Turnbull
“If you make excuses, you will always make excuses. I only partner with 3 attributes in their mindset. Visionary, Abundance, Investment. If you have those attributes you can only be 1 of 2 types of people…a high-achieving entrepreneur or one that is destined to be one” – Justin Breen
“3.5 years ago I took out a $100k loan to invest in a program that I didn’t really even know what I was investing in. That said, there were 2 reasons I did it. One…I learned to trust myself and my decisions. Two…the person I invested in, it was about their presence and how they showed up every day” – Trevor Turnbull
“Directness repels nonsense and attracts greatness. That’s why I’m so direct. Because it repels people that make excuses. And it attracts people (that get it) at the highest level” – Justin Breen
“Podcasts like this are actually replacing mainstream media in terms of relevance and importance. They are a transformational and transactional platform for entrepreneurs” – Justin Breen
“Entrepreneurs are not inhuman. If anything we feel our emotions at an amplified level. But, as we evolve and learn from past negative patterns and limiting beliefs, we are able to recognize them and move through them quicker” – Trevor Turnbull
“I partner with the .1%. Those are the people that pivot into new technologies and employ everyone else. That’s why I only partner with a certain type of person because they actually change the world and everyone else benefits from it” – Justin Breen
“Most of the people I talk to, we rarely talk about what they do. Rather we talk about who they are. People at the highest level want connectivity, they want to be in the media, they want to be on podcasts like this” – Justin Breen
