Here are a few highlights from their conversation:

  • Jared quotes his former coach, “A goal would be the measurable, specific activities that precedes the outcome or result.”
  • Trust is the key to leadership, Dave says.
  • You’re not a leader until you have a follower, and while being a leader means stepping out, it also sometimes means following.
  • The difference between music and noise is coordination.
  • A book is a life hack and a leveraged experience.
  • What differentiates one professional services firm from another is their people, their culture, and their execution.
  • Jared repositions failure as education.
  • People don’t change until the pain of their current circumstances exceeds the pain of the change.
  • Not all decisions are financial decisions, Dave teaches.
  • Our understanding of wealth changes over the years.
