Notable interview quotations:
It’s a gradual process.
You evolve, you change, you believe different things.
Hey you out there in listener land, if you are a fighter, and I’m not talking about in the cage I’m talking about in life, meaning you fight for what you want, these are the principles that will apply to you as well.
