Courtney’s Quote of the Day

“[In the U.S], we are consistently graduating kids from high school who don’t have the necessary skills to meet the demands of a 21st century economy…As entrepreneurs, this should set off alarm bells. Building a business requires a certain mix of people with the right set of skills. If you can’t find these people, then an already exhausting climb will start feeling more like scaling Everest itself. ”

– Torsh CEO Courtney Williams
