The language of life. The person who knows how to write and actually read this language will have the ability to change lives forever.
Whatever field you’re in, you’ve got to find the scariest [makes fun bleeping noise]’ing thing in your area of profession, and then do it. I mean the scariest thing. The thing like “Nguuuh, I better not touch that!” Touch that, grab it, get on it, and then you can go beyond it.
I like to work under the impression that ideas are never ever limited by budget.

If you can be available, you can be open, and you can be bold, you're life can change in a lot of different ways.
I always tell people, whether you hire me for something or not, find the people who you trust, find the people who are honest with you.
Trojan Horse marketing: If you don't like scallops, wrap a scallop in bacon, you'll love it. So taking your marketing message and wrapping it in bacon usually does the trick.
What I started to learn was the adventure, not the explanation, is what captures people attention.
A lot of people... said you have a different style, a different way of looking at things. I said that's because I never learned the proper rules. I always just approached things by flipping them upside down.
If you disregard your assumptions about mostly everything and approached your existence more open-minded, that would help you give in and seek out and information to get you on a path.
What if you approach things, in anything, small things, big things, you look at it and consider the process of how something is made?
But what if you did imagine that you could find inspiration in weird places or that human connections can lead you to your next big idea?
Honesty and truly and with my whole sense of being that I approach life with this sense of wonder, and candy taught me that because of the limitless potential that it has.
Why don't we just start with our own ideas? Why do we have to use the internet to get ideas? . . . I don't want to do that. I want to make it up. I want to start from the beginning and do it ourselves.
There's nothing worse than people who want to resort to doing what's easy or who say in a meeting 'that sounds hard' . . . there's just no room for that in the way I want to operate my life or business.
How do we do what I want to do the way I want to do it? . . . This idea of limitless potential that candy has provided has caused me to able to go beyond with it as my job.
Are we willing to share our platforms in order to give creatives a stronger voice?
Nearly every success I've achieved has been a result of listening to someone who was willing to share their experience.
Our creation has the power to unify or divide.
Dancing taught me so much about discipline. Discipline means doing things whether you want to or not. It means doing things that you don't necessarily like doing. It means doing things when you just think you don't have it in you. And it means doing things that others tell you you aren't capable of doing.
Right now Louisville is experiencing a renaissance of the arts.
"Being alone is no way to live or create. We are all better working with others, to give more and be more, than we ever could be alone.
Most of the time a taboo is just something we can't talk about.
Taboos are these unwritten rules that hover above us that govern what we do. Most of us don't know where they came from or who put them there. They exert incredible control over our daily lives.
The mantra I like to live my life by, instead, is that everyone poops.
This fear and this inhibition to actually get started with something, because we feel like it's not reinventing the wheel.
