We love ourselves a good quote and so we asked our community to share their favorite quotes and affirmations with us and we’ve highlighted some below.

Daniel Wolfe | Executive Chef & Owner

My favorite quote comes from Disney’s “The Jungle Book!” The exact quote is longer and known as “the law of the jungle” but the part that sticks out for me is this: “For the strength of the pack is the wolf, and the strength of the wolf is the pack.” I, of course, add an “E” to the end of the word Wolf as it reflects my last name, Wolfe. I really like this quote as it embodies the way in which I view my team. Part of what makes me so successful is the incredible team I have behind me. Without them, I would not be able to do what I do On the flip side, having been in the industry for nearly a decade, I am strong in every area of the kitchen and can jump in with my team and work right alongside them depending on how deep in the trenches we are. Part of being a member of our Pak is knowing that every single person’s opinion matters, and we are all people so it’s important to treat each other like that. There may be a leader, but everyone has a place and value in the pak. Read more>>

Katie Martin | Owner & Actor

My favorite quote is “luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity.” It is a quote that I like to share with my acting students in class, and that I like to live by in my personal life as well. I believe the amount of training one needs to become a successful actor can at times be overlooked and there is so much to learn about the craft. When an opportunity presents itself, whether that is a great audition or you have booked the job and you are on set, the training that you have received prior is what will prepare you to be successful when the opportunity presents itself. I also like living with this mindset because I feel it gives us some control over our destiny. Instead of luck being some small moment we are sitting around and waiting for, it is a small moment that we are preparing for and ready to be successful when it happens. Read more>>

Greg J. Micek, JD | Inventor Advocate

In 1995, I left the world of consulting, as a contract CFO, to enter the world of entrepreneurship. From 1995-2005, I launched four successive public companies, amassing, over that span, over $500 million in shareholder wealth. In 2005-2006 Wall Street, just as my wealth was prepped to explode in value, destroyed me. It has taken me these past 14 years to gather myself for a re-launch. However, I am, in fact, re-launching, massively. The quote that forever changed my mindset was one that I stumbled onto a few years ago. It comes from Frank Lloyd Wright. He said, “I can design the greatest building in the world. However, unless a builder comes along, takes the design off of the shelf and actually builds it, it is worthless” That one quote changed my life. I now have peace of mind, as I continue to design my business model and simply wait for builders to show up. I am now surrounding myself with an increasing number of builders, and gaining strength on a daily basis. Read more>>
