Notable Quotes:
“Strategic connections, events, friendship … all those things play into success.” - Chaz Wolfe (Host)

“I knew I could outwork the person to my left and to my right. And that's what I did.” - Paul Larson

“My whole point was that I wanted to spend more time on my life with my kids and make a lot of money and travel. I didn't wanna pick and choose.” - Paul Larson

“It takes just as much effort to manage and operate a four unit as it does a 75 unit. Actually, it's less work on a 75 unit. There's a lot more money and juice, for the squeeze.” - Paul Larson

“I love to get in a room and talk with someone that really wants more, that really wants to grow.” Paul Larson

“Don't stay on the sidelines, just hop into a deal with someone, put some money into a deal, offer some value, figure out how to joint venture.”- Paul Larson

“As you educate yourself, you get more confidence and you're able to take shots that some people never take.” - Paul Larson

“As long as I provide value and I understand my product and I truly wanna help someone, I can sell.” - Paul Larson

“In every single business you have to get outta your own way and you can only get as big as you allow yourself to be.” - Chaz Wolfe (Host)

“Identify your lane, clarify your lane, run fast.” - Chaz Wolfe (Host)

“I would sell my car and pay for a mastermind and ride the bus to work if I had to, to get in a room and learn, because it's not about now, it's about the rest of your life.” - Paul Larson
