“When you can actually articulate them [core values], what that does to you from a decision-making standpoint of saying this is clearly what I should do, this is what I should not do. And so, coming out of that, really what I did was I doubled down on things that were aligned, then I really pulled back on things that, that weren't.” Robert Glazer
