“We had worked on trust with a lot of people before that we’re kind of like partners or recommendations. So we made the mistake of working in trust with this company. After the project was finished, the company essentially like sold the company to somebody else and they just wrote us out, didn’t pay us anything on that. So we pretty much lost four months of work and couple of hundred thousand dollars.” – Dalair Hudson

“I’ve always just been a very low-stress person in general. Nothing bothers me. So I’ve noticed a lot of things, but I don’t always say everything.” – Dalair Hudson

“If you cannot reach out and talk to them, you may not want to put as much trust into the project. You need to do a lot more vetting on those projects ahead of time.” – Dalair Hudson

“My intent and the end goal for any business is to help the end customer to make life easier. If the customer that I’m working with or the product that I’m working with doesn’t have that kind of mentality, I assume they’re just here for the quick buck. And if that’s the intent, it’s a disingenuous project. It’s probably not going to be successful                        and I don’t want to be a part of it.” – Dalair Hudson

“Don’t be afraid to message people. Even though there will be people that are going to kind of just shut you down or kind of ignore you, don’t be afraid to send out a hundred messages to a hundred different people.” – Dalair Hudson
