Highlight Quotes

  • “Sometimes you do need to cut out the negative energy, but sometimes we confuse negative people with those who are looking out for you.”
  • “I was just this dumb kid that didn’t really know who he was yet and I just saw a target and that’s what I worked on. It was me just knowing who I wanted to be to the world and trying to become that.”

About Quentin

Quentin got his start in 2017 making a name for himself by putting himself out there making videos on social media utilizing stories to build an audience. His journey has been far from easy, but now he is a well established entrepreneur, writer, and podcaster who identifies as a misfit and inspires other misfits to embrace what makes them strange and take a chance on what makes them unique. Moving on from starting his own marketing agency, Quentin is the head of marketing for Lewis Howes at School of Greatness.
