“The reasons that buy and hold stuck and resonated with me are because you can create wealth over the long-term, and generate passive income in the near term. And those two things combined are a really powerful thing to allow you to create that generational wealth and build financial freedom in the near term. It allows you to achieve that point that I call financial freedom, and allowing you to essentially be able to retire from your day job, which was a big point in my life.” – Jacob Ayers
“Always have that vision and that skill in the back of your mind to get big and do things bigger and quicker.” – Jacob Ayers
“I think one thing you’ve got to focus on is the mindset. Why are you doing this? What’s driving you? And if you can tap into something deep there that will motivate you to take action. And to me, it came down to mindset, having that abundance mindset, having the drive to build something for yourself. That desire is what pushed me over that cliff.” – Jacob Ayers
“Podcasting has been the most phenomenal networking tool I think I could have envisioned.” – Jacob Ayers
“Think about why you’re going to do the podcast. Those are the reasons why I started doing it. And it’s not passive. So, don’t go into it with that kind of a mentality because you’ll be sorely disappointed when you come to find out how much work it is.” – Jacob Ayers
