“God has you where He has you and He expects the best out of you.”  – Wes Litton

“Our primary calling is to be faithful in the life God has given us.”  – Thane Ringler

“If the Lord’s called you to it, there’s no reason to have any ounce of laziness in you regarding whatever that calling is.”  – Wes Litton

“If I could label the Midwest – these people are resilient. They don’t give up, they aren’t as emotional, they really value community and family, and they use community and family to grind.”  – Wes Litton

“Wherever you’re at, as long as the Lord’s calling you there, He will either provide it or bless it. And it doesn’t always look like success.”  – Wes Litton

“God’s not going to do anything that He can’t handle.”  – Wes Litton

“Until we’re forced to get help, we’re not going to be seeking the help that we should. And until we force accountability on ourselves, we’re probably not going to follow through with what we want to do.”  – Thane Ringler

“It’s really easy for us to look in hindsight and talk about any of these things with confidence, but in the moment it’s always harder to act when we haven’t done it before. And it always takes more time than we want it to.”  – Thane Ringler

“Coaching is the opportunity to take what I’ve learned and give back. Taking people from entrepreneurial to purposeful so that they can develop great businesses and change their lives – that’s it.”  – Wes Litton

“Time-block your 20% today.”  – Wes Litton
