Episode Quotes

“I really am inspired and motivated when I can help people go through the process of stepping into where they really want to be in life. It is true freedom when you are living your best life” – Ryan Peters

“I love Canada, no question about it, but there is also something about being globally minded and recognizing that we put borders in place as control mechanisms, but the reality is it’s one world” – Ryan Peters

“I remember the first time I went on an all-inclusive vacation to Mexico in 2004. I flew down from -30C Saskatchewan weather, it was gorgeous and I drank and ate my face off for 7 days straight. Looking back I think that if I operated now like I did back then I wouldn’t last a month.  I’d end up sick and depressed” – Trevor Turnbull

“A lot of the work I do tends to be with CEOs of companies that are looking to grow and scale.  I find I have the most impact when working with leaders that have a mindset of constant growth and a commitment to live their best life both personally and professionally” – Ryan Peters

“Alex Honnold is a rock climber with no ropes. It’s absolutely crazy to most of us.  But, I see it similarly to being an entrepreneur.  When you eat, breath and sleep something so much it might look crazy to others.  But, in truth, it’s true knowledge and capability through experience” – Ryan Peters

“There’s a quote I saw recently that says – When I was young I tried to change the world, now that I’m older and wiser I just try to change myself” – Ryan Peters

“I was on the water a few months ago and I met this couple out surfing. I started talking to this guy that has a business that is valued at $4.5B and he was struggling. I gave him some surfing tips and it was amazing to watch his mind open up as I helped him catch a wave” – Ryan Peters

“I remember when I first started surfing, it was super frustrating. And then I allowed the advice my buddy was giving me to land and I realized how much easier it would be if I just gave in and allowed myself to go with the flow. The analogy of that in business is so similar.  The more I’ve tried to force things, the less successful I am.  The more I’m in flow, everything just works. But you have to be humble” – Trevor Turnbull
