Snippets From The Episode

  • "It's always like you're on the edge of that cliff and about to fall off, you know, it's constant in this business, I mean, we've been doing it for 20 years, Dudley Land's been doing it for over 40, but you're all, I mean, it never changes every, every day you walk in the office. What's going to happen today? You have no clue if you're going to be able to stay on that cliff or not." - Brandon Ward
  • "You want to make sure your project managers have the bandwidth to do the job the right way and give the projects the attention they need. But you don't want to have so many project managers that you've got guys sitting there needing something to do." - Brent Broussard
  • "You got to know what you know and know what you don't know." - Brandon Ward
  • "If you're not messing up, you're not working hard enough. That's just all there is to it." - Brent Broussard
  • "You need a partner who's going to be able to handle the boots on the ground. It doesn't work with some person sitting in New York City, trying to contact a landowner in Tennessee. So I'm hoping that that shift is going to continue in our direction of us being a viable partner for these groups and not just a staffing company." - Steve Carr
