Notable Quotes

“Those failures, I look at them now and say, ‘What a wonderful experience I got out of them,’ because they really helped me to solidify what to not do again.”
Mike Ashie

“There wasn’t a push to say go to school, get a good job, but there also wasn’t a push to use my creative outlet. I was just free to come up with ideas on my own, which is why I was able to have so many failures because I thought, this idea is the next big the one that’s going to the moon, but I have a family that keeps me balanced enough that a failure is not the end of the world—like, don’t do anything foolish because you didn’t succeed in this and learn from it.”
Mike Ashie

“It’s standard business practice that if you’re starting a business, do not try to talk to everybody because you’re talking to nobody. Share your values, share your opinions, share your thoughts, feelings.”
