Stop being scared, and go for it! QUOTABLES: “When you think about connecting to people, you need to have demographics that will be able to subscribe to the people that you're trying to sell to. So if we're trying to sell our platform as a way that we can reach more customers, we need to have people from all age groups, demographics, backgrounds, and all walks of life.” - Paul Adamson “I think a lot of us, especially during the pandemic, forget that you got to be real.
