(02:50) There's no secret to success. Just beat the shit out of it. Crush it. Just show up and do it.

(06:25) "I still have the same mindset of creating great content that people enjoy and consume."
(07:00) What drives you? "What's the alternative? Sitting around and doing nothing? I don't want to sit on a beach and do nothing. I want to create. Because if I don't, I feel like I'm dying."
(07:55) Typical week? *laughs* it never ends, it's a constant. Wake up, create, engage with audience, eat, sleep, repeat...

(20:43) Did you ever feel like you wanted to give up?
(21:00) Wake up, shoot a video, edit a video, post a video, interact with people, go to lunch, come back from lunch, think about an idea, shoot a video, edit the video, put it out into the world, interact with people until 1 or 2am, go to sleep, wake up and do it all again for the next 6 or 7 years.
(22:00) "I didn't start Fro Knows Photo until I was 29. ... I made a change at 29, I transformed my body, and that gave me more to get in front of the camera. I wanted to do something. I decided right then and there and I did it. If you have an idea, just do it."
