“There’s not a lot of people that look like me that do what I do. I found it to be an advantage. People would never forget me.” [20:10]
“When you put yourself out there, that’s the only way that you can really succeed.” [29:20]
“With wine labels, I’m just trying to get people to pick the bottle up… People are 23% more likely to buy a bottle of wine if they pick it up or touch it.” [41:15]
