Brendan Byrnes: Let's talk about that one that you mentioned, being the CEO of your own destiny. Why do you think that is the future?

Maynard Webb: I think being the CEO of your own destiny is extraordinarily important because you can no longer cede control to a company anymore. You do your best work when you're driven to do it. Self-employed people are far more passionate than people that work for companies and I think all of us have a purpose in where we're going in our life and the more we own that versus expect the company to take care of us the better work we will do.
