"I've been really grateful seeing all the transformations [everyone in the program] has gone through. I also wondered where [without this program] I might have been. I think looking back I might have been sitting in my office like it was the back seat of a car driven by my fear, doing donughts sitting on 20K of Kiwinet's money afraid of spending it on the wrong thing, stuck in traffic, not taking the next step and building a prototype to demonstrate an idea. And after this amazing program ... one of you said "you can change your perspective in an moment" and at some point, not only did my perspective change, but the seat I'm sitting in changed. I'm driving the car now. Fear is in the back seat."
