00:02:58--> 00:03:13

And those of you who want to extended session, just find the time when I am available to you. And this is the point I'm saying because a lot of times many of us are focused on entitlement. You say what is my entitlement? family businesses, you know, the sons is no Well, my shed

00:03:15--> 00:03:24

and I say to them, this is the reality of life is first add value. entitlement will follow Why? Because entitlement comes with territory.

00:04:13--> 00:04:34

You don't get hired. And that's one of the problems we focus on. What am I supposed to get? No, you're not supposed anything. You're not supposed to get anything.
