“It’s a negotiation, but our job is to start, like with any negotiation, with letting our tenants feel heard. We can’t force them into a box and if we do, it will backfire.”

“Success favors the bold. There is a lot of value in just taking that next step. There is a great book called The Hard Thing About Hard Things and the core value there is if it were easy to get from A to B, that’s a commoditized thing and it’s going to pay very poorly. In this business, there is very rarely a clear path from A to B, but after a while, you develop 4 or 5 different bread crumbs that you’re able to spot, and you’re able to make a path from A to B that others can’t see.”
