Notable Quotes 

“I like to ask people, when's the last time you just went out and played?”  - Dave Forster

“It was just fresh air and freedom, and the stress and anxiety of what was normally weighing on me just melted away. That's really why we started the shop. When I had that realization, I said, ‘Oh man, I gotta share this with as many people as possible.’”  - Dave Forster

“Really the answer is creating a system, or a process, or a culture, or a team to where there's no burden on anyone.”  - Chaz Wolfe

“Regardless of what widget or whatever would be in the shop, we're still gonna be having community events and bringing people together around a table in some way.”  - Dave Forster

“If you're community driven, if you're people driven, if you're authentic, you're trying to help people, business circles back fast if you do it in that way.”  - Chaz Wolfe

“If you make it about people, if you make it about the solution, if you make it about authenticity, then that's how the business survives.”  - Chaz Wolfe
