Quotes

Some people consume media by listening; some consume by watching; and, some by reading. So I don’t think that written content is going to go away anytime soon. — Todd Cochrane 

I think it’s important for a millennial to try to get some exposure across the space. If you’re just working with a few people, basically you don’t see a wide range of leadership. That is kind of scary to me because I think you become a better leader with more exposure. — Todd Cochrane

I think you have to allow people to fail. — Todd Cochrane
