#63 – Leadership Expert Series : Joyel Crawford

Guest Introduction – Joyel Crawford

“When they stop promoting you, it’s time for you to go”

“Starting a business, working full time and giving 150% of yourself is a lot”

“if the doors stop opening, it’s up to you to figure out how to keep opening them, and it might not be in the same place as where you started”

“You need to make sure you’re showing others what you want to see out of them”

“There’s nothing worse than being led by someone who sits in their ivory tower and shouts orders down from above”

“If you do what you love and you acknowledge the people that you work with along the way, you could be super successful”

“Take care  of yourself”
