Genius Albert Einstein quotes:
"Try not to become a man of success,
but rather a man of value." and
“The measure of intelligence is the ability to change.”
Our founder, Mr. Mark Ayers, made a quote to me, Justin, your
humble author of this page, a timeless quote in my opinion:
"You know you've become successful when you can
look yourself in the mirror, and honestly state out loud:
-- "I have honestly, fervently, and faithfully
used every bit of my potential...and--
I am completely happy doing what I do."--
If you haven't used every last little piece of
your potential, and be happy in it's endeavors,
you must go back, and improve, until you
can honestly say this."

EXTRA!EXTRA!: (Paraphrased and slightly edited by Mark Ayers, CEO)
Wes Kowalchuk a Business Coach answered a question on Alignable
about what he wish he knew when he started his business:
"I wish I would have known about marketing. Attraction marketing.
With no budget, and no clue, I copied what everyone else was doing.
It was what I was led to believe marketing was, to let people know
I was open for business. Years later, I learned that I needed to
market the problem I solved for my perfect client.
Everything changed after that. If you aren’t letting your clients
know that you can solve their biggest issue, do yourself a favour
and stop it.
Learn how to use the Conversion Equation and attract all the clients
you want: Interrupt, Engage, Educate, Offer. "
Quite a prophetic thought:
