Key Quotes:

  • “I trust everybody in here and I don’t need to look over my shoulder. We’ve all got the client’s best interest at heart. So, another instance of where I got pretty lucky is the people that I get to work with every day and the culture that we have here is great.” – Brian Blakely
  • “Sometimes it’s good to hear from other people who may have the same story as you do or can use some support when you think you’re all alone. What better time to come out with a small business podcast locally here in my community where people can not only get to know these small businesses better, they can learn about their story.” – Brian Blakely
  • “You may be embarrassed about some of the content that you have out now. I mean, it gets better the more you do it but you just have to be consistent. Don’t be scared, just do it. Have someone help you. There’s plenty of people out there.” – Brian Blakely
