Key Quotes:

  • “I’m finding out that the team is here to step in. And, we’ll figure it out. The service team left, but we figured it out. As long as the bond, the leadership, the respect for each other is solid and strong… people are willing to chip in.” – Daniel Seong
  • “As leaders, we have to keep pushing that envelope because we expect a lot of things from our staff and our team members, but yet we don’t push ourselves. The staff needs to see that.” – Daniel Seong
  • “Everybody just needs to do their part. No matter how big or how small they think it is, everybody matters. As long as the leader is conveying that one single direction, with time, it all works out.” – Daniel Seong
