“An environment of generosity where people are, they are only too happy to give to others their time, their attention, their good feelings, their support, their sympathy. In an environment of generosity, you unlock speed, you unlock creativity, you unlock new ideas, and you know that new ideas are a compound interest article, right? Because with every new idea that gives birth to another new idea, and on and on, and it compounds itself.” – Neal Foard
