Powerful quotes from Ahaji
“I think sometimes people think they have to have a master plan or vision before they start something, and that certainly was not the case for me.”
“(If) people nudge you and tap you enough times and you’re listening, at some point, you gotta pay attention.”
“Instead of trying to figure it all out, I’m going to learn as I do what I do.”
“It’s not about having all the answers. It’s really about understanding why you’re doing it.”
