Episode Highlights

“When everything is taken away from you, it becomes very clear what you really, really miss and how you want your life to look, and this applies to business and our personal lives as well.” – 8:45 – Hollie Power


“Life is 10% what happens to us and 90% how we react to it. The reason why this has been one of my main takeaways is because, whilst everyone might not have been in the same boat, we were all in the same storm.” – 10:35 – Ryan Power


“Some people fell through the cracks when it came to government grants and support, which was really sad for a lot of people. It was a very difficult and a really challenging time. So it has made us realize that it’s always good to have other ideas as backups.” – 12:35 – Hollie Power


“When things are difficult, I always remember that everything is cyclical. You look at the history of humankind and the history of the economy; things go up, things go down, things go up, things go down. This is something we have to remember all the time when you’re down, you’re going to go back up again.” – 17:40 – Hollie Power


“If, over the lockdown period, you enjoyed the fact that you got to spend more family time, or time with the kids – which was a positive that came out of it for a lot of people – then you need to start factoring that into every week for you.” – 20:05 – Ryan Power


“If you don’t like something that someone else is doing in another business, just move on. Right? Why would you feel the need to highlight it in some way? It is just such a bad look going in on other business owners and other people.” – 22:35 – Ryan Power
