‘’Every entrepreneur needs to keep an eye on what’s happening. Part of the trick is trying to move to where the ball is going, where the puck is going, and be there when it arrives. But you don’t want to be there too early because you’ll be standing there waiting for a good period of time if you misread it. Trying to keep an eye on what’s happening is really important.’ – Rob Leslie.
