QUAIN’S TAKEAWAYS:

2. See value in every person.

4. Don’t worry about what other people think about you. What kind of legacy do you want to leave on the world?

5. Don’t get discouraged even when people don’t believe in your dreams or ideas. You always have to believe in yourself. Who else will? Have that courage to take that first step. A lot of people don’t even take that shot. Are you going to keep that ball in your hands? Even if you miss, pick up the ball and shoot again. Shoot until you make it.

7. Never forget here you came from or who helped you along the way.

8. Appreciate the journey.
