"There was line, during an interview I was doing, audio with Fat Joe the Rapper and he said something really simple and it's really become my mantra and I been spreading it - thank you Fat Joe - and that is this, and I'll leave you with this closing thought.
Plenty of people are geniuses, plenty of people have bright ideas, but they'll never know it because they don't execute.
So if you got an idea and you think that it would be good - just do it. Do the damn thing, don't be afraid go out there and do it because that idea you have that you think is so great - it really is a great idea, but you gotta do it. You got to bring the idea into fruition. So if you don't bring the idea into fruition your never gonna know...I would have never of known had I not written this book. Despite my fear, despite my lack of qualifications, despite my knockin’ knees and all that."
