Key Quotes:

  • “There’s a matching component to grit that is actually able to be taught and able to be nurtured when you’re exhausted. And, that’s resourcefulness. Gritty people learn how to build up their resources.” – Katherine Ternes
  • “We’ve hit all of the goals that the business sets, but, my own personal goals, I either need to lean into the resourcefulness and just say like, it’s okay to have a moment of rest. Or, I have to get gritty real quick here. And it’s really fun to be at that crux.” – Katherine Ternes
  • “The teams that go and investigate the stuff that gets put on the roadmap and they test it, and they beta use it…those are the ones that make a world of difference. Those are the ones that take technology from being 150 agencies and it’s just one person’s opinion, and it’s some engineers building stuff. You guys are the ones that take it and really build it into what independent agents need.” – Katherine Ternes
