Key Quotes:

  • “It’s our time to reconnect. And so, not only does the next generation expect this, maybe not on that big scale, but show your appreciation. It doesn’t have to feel like an obligatory thing. You know, do something a little bit creative. And, really, let’s just say thank you” – Scott Niermann
  • “In a relationship, first it’s acceptance, right? Accepting that person for who they are because we’ve all got quirks. We all got certain gifts and knowledge, and we’ve all got the desire to be part of a team or part of a relationship.” – Scott Niermann
  • “My really, really good friends are just as important to me as my co workers. They’re building the empire that is helping serve the community and what we’re doing.” – Jason Cass
