“If I were to be super stubborn about my ideas of how I thought this is going to work, to be able to screen and scale this brand, I probably wouldn’t be able to have all these interesting ways to explore if it’s going to be more effective, or maybe equally effective, whatever it might be. Just being open-minded to challenging what you know, is going to be super important.” – Vance Lee
