“Don't look at AI as an enemy. Look at it as your friend who's going to allow you to say, “Okay, that part of the business runs on AI. This part of the business runs a relationship.” And I get to choose which one I want to do that with.” - Penny Breslin

“What does that mean to have a business coach and partial CFO? It's cashflow planning, it's forecasting, and budgeting, actually explaining to clients what it is that you do, what you just said in terms of helping them make better decisions. They're all outcomes and that's what you have to be talking about on your website.” – Damien Greathead
