“When you’ve been an entrepreneur, it can get very busy and you can be consumed by it. Especially, I think a lot of people get into one of those types of people that really enjoy work as I do, and really just want to go after it like their hair is on fire. And you got to stop and think, “Hey, what’s most important to me?” That’s been a journey for me.” – Lee Yoder
“Do the little things to raise the capital with those big deals and do little things to develop relationships with brokers.” – Lee Yoder
