“I am currently the greatest version of myself. There is no doubt. How can I not be. But I’m constantly aspiring to be a greater version of myself. Which means I have to forgive myself when I make wrong decisions or raise my voice or whatever the case my be” – Trevor Turnbull
“My goal is not to change somebody. It’s to become the best version of myself that holds space and projects something out into the world that allows that other person to self-reflect.” – Trevor Turnbull
“When you show up in that true, authentic self that you are…it resonates through your staff, the clients that you are working with and the conversations that we have.” – Trevor Turnbull
“It’s super important that you don’t go through your life being run by an ideology. Rather you use the ideology, but the ideology doesn’t use you. Make sure it’s a part of you, but it doesn’t become you.” – Mario Torres
“I’m not anti-science or anti-vaccine…I’m open to all possibilities. But I want to embrace the scientific minds of the world to think – what are we looking at? Are we looking at it from the right lens?” – Trevor Turnbull
“Mindvalley saw a 150% return on ad spend in other languages compared to English. They were able to double their business in 2 years and that’s incredible.” – Mario Torres
“We hear so much about how social media is ruining society. But it’s also creating tremendous opportunities for my kids to connect with your kids. My kids are speaking Spanish everyday because of an app called Duolingo. So, we can focus on all the negative, but there are also some real incredible things happening.” – Trevor Turnbull
“How do we raise our kids to be emotionally intelligent and culturally experienced. How do we show our kids that we can be comfortable in the unknown and the silence and be forgiving to ourselves and just let it flow.” – Trevor Turnbull

“There’s a really simple exercise to find your life purpose. Ask yourself the question…why? When you answer that…ask yourself again…why?

“Every cent that’s above our minimum profit margin (and it’s very low)…I give everything to my team. And I try to make it as impactful as possible.” – Mario Torres
“What is the lesson I’m supposed to learn from this. How can I look at it differently. Even though sometimes it sucks. The cold plunge on my deck is a great metaphor for this – I don’t want to get in…there is 2 inches of ice on this damn thing – but jump in the pool.” – Trevor Turnbull
