“Now is the time, don’t push snooze in life. If you push snooze when you wake up in the morning, you’re going to push snooze in life. Set a plan, write it down, and find people around you that’ll hold you accountable. But you can never quit. You can never stop.” –Troy Marcus, Founder of Evergen Equity
