SEAN MULLIGAN QUOTES FROM THE INTERVIEW
“We like to work with stable people that are super talented, ideally and then the variables adjust themselves, and we’ll decide if it makes sense”
“When you have that feeling where you feel like you can’t go anymore, you still have like 60% in the tank, so pushing beyond those boundaries for anyone who’s frustrated with their experience”
“‘Writing up’ is a phrase, always trying to be in a room where everybody else is more experienced than you are, so you can just soak up as much of their wisdom and experience as possible”
