“If we keep our eyes and ears open, we can learn from everyone in life… no exception. Collaborating allows us an enhanced experience and a broader range of options. I don’t believe in competing. I do not care about proving I am right, or I am first. I want to collaborate and be able to communicate and share values and collaborating allows you to broaden the perspective that you have and it’s not about competing.”– Loreen Arbus.
