Tom: "I like to consider myself a learning machine. That's what one podcast guest said to me about himself that I've stolen. There's a few ways that you can do that. One, I love books and podcasts and things like that. Two, I love learning from people. It's one of the reasons why I do my podcast. And three, try to learn from experiences.
Tom: "When you fail, to take a moment to reflect and write down or think to yourself like what could have I done better and try to take that and go to the next phase. I think it's just a constant process that we're all on."
Tom: "What you're meant to do, it's not supposed to be easy. There are gonna be obstacles, there are gonna be challenges but the most rewarding thing that you can do is to keep following what that light is."
