    Quotes
    “And that's why I feel Vascugenix is going to be a very successful company because we really think about the 360 view from the worst scenario to the best scenario and everything in between.” (14:53)
    So I feel like sometimes we need to push a little bit on people, but I understand at the same time, you don't want to push too hard on people because it's complex. Life in the US is very complex because you have family issues, financial issues. I mean, I understand all of that. I think we should do a mix of both where we need to push people a little bit more but manage them correctly for them to do a good job. (27:28)
    “Be a learner. The first thing is to learn how to learn. Understand what is valuable and what is not valuable.” (30:24)
