  1. Disney is my favorite! I meet a lot, A LOT of people who get all excited about their awesome ideas. I’ll talk to them a year later, and they’re still talking about them. Then someone else “steals” their idea and they piss and moan about how unlucky they are.

    Keep hustlin’, Joseph!

  2. I’m one of those guys who needs to take Walt Disney’s advice. 🙂

    Thanks for leaving a comment. I look forward to talking more.

  3. Joseph I have 3 favorites. Quote #1, #13 and #15.
    Keep it up. Your freshness online is contageous!

  4. Trophemus,

    Those three quotes are great. I do try to keep it fresh. And also clean.
