“My primary goal, Grant, when I get on stage, I always try to ask myself this question over and over as I’m preparing as well as when I walk on the stage, is just how can I create maximum value for the audience? That’s where I found the best success, man, because you’re really focusing on how you can create and serve the audience, and it’s always going to come back full circle to you.”
