Thanks for the kind words, Divana.

You make a great point about choosing priorities and the relationship it was with entrepreneurship.

I'm often telling my entrepreneurship students something similar: entrepreneurs have to prioritize. There's consequences to every decision they make, and a big part of their job is recognizing and understanding how choosing to do one thing inherently costs them the opportunity to do something else.
