Tweetable Quotes

“Because we were a services business, I found that that’s been our strongest advantage becoming a SaaS platform. Knowing the problem intimately and being able to solve for our experiences, our clients’ experiences, that’s really led us to where we are today.” (06:16) (Jonathan)

“The challenge is trust. The challenge is connecting. A lot of these companies are amazing but they can’t connect to their buyer. A lot of these service providers are great, but they might not have a level of high trust. And so, I think with our background and our approach, we do all of the due diligence and then we allow the individual to make the choice if they would like to reach out and let them decide.” (13:08) (Jonathan)

“We now know where we need to spend money in order to accelerate the business both from a product and sales and marketing perspective. So I think, for that, it makes sense to help us continue to scale out in years to come.” (19:48) (Jonathan)

“From a pretty early age in my life, I always kinda knew this is what I wanted to do because I want to change the world. I want to leave a long-lasting impact that far outlives me. And, I’ve always felt that the best way to get there is to become a founder, go do something, forge a path. And I’m doing that now. I’m living my dream and that’s really cool.” (23:35) (Jonathan)

“I’ve found that my ‘Why’ is the same personally and professionally, which is to help people.” (31:22) (Jonathan)
