Snippets from the Episode

  • "Treating people like you want to be treated and being humble about it. Don't go in there as a know it all. Gain their trust, because you have a goal to achieve. Just like anything, you got your job, you've gotta make it happen, and that goal has to fit within the confines of what your client has laid out for you." - Jimmy Hopkins
  • "Start learning everything you can about the rules and regulations so that you can accurately give these lessors the information that they need to make an informed decision on that oil and gas lease. Don't be a bullshit artist. Put in the time, man." - Jimmy Hopkins
  • "If you can get that opportunity to sit in and listen to those negotiations, it's invaluable. If you're a young guy on a crew, ask your leasing crew chief, that they're negotiating a big deal. Can I sit in and listen? Be vocal about those things." - Brent Broussard
