Episode 036 Quotables

“I messed up a lot for a couple of years and got a lot of battle scars from many, many different clients. … I choose to frame that as an opportunity to do better.”
— Nick Disabato

“Err on the side of specificity. It’s not enough to just say, ‘I’m a writer. I’m a designer.’ What do you write? What kind of outcome are you creating? What kind of thing are you designing?”
— Nick Disabato
