John Becker shared his favorite:
"The way we spend our days is the way we spend our lives." -Annie Dillard
and Will Smith shared one from JFK:
The problems of the world cannot possibly be solved by skeptics or cynics whose horizons are limited by the obvious realities. We need people who can dream of things that never were.
What are your favorites? And how do you keep them handy?
- If you always do what you’ve always done you’ll always get what you’ve always gotten
- Appreciate your mistakes for what they are: precious life lessons that can only be learned the hard way. Unless it’s a fatal mistake, which, at least, others can learn from it. -Al Franken
These are definitely more on the professional side, but they've stuck with me since the day I heard them, and have helped me tremendously throughout my career.
The first is from the one and only Jack Carroll !
"The art of salesmanship is the absence of salesmanship."
And one from Dharmesh Shah...

Your content creation process needs to be airtight to serve as a robust engine for your content creation vehicle. You might be thinking, "I simply create content as I go and when needed." However, consider this: one of the major challenges many face is maintaining a routine of producing three articles and two to three videos per week.Without a solid foundation in place, competing becomes a daunting task.Check out the content creation roadmap template.

Nathan Dube I won't pretend I've tested every tool out there, but this one is the one I'm using currently: https://writer.com/ai-content-detector/(it called me out on my own writing vs ai writing accurately :S)I think the factual part comes into how granular your content is. So for example, one of the articles I (tried to) AI for my own company was about luxury wedding venues here in KY- it completely destroyed that one and not in a good way. It did fine on easy to crawl info like the addresses, but failed when it had to go a few pages deep into the website (pricing, for example).I will say that it's great news that we have multiple rounds of edits baked into our processes through TAYA- having SMEs a click away to check over info is awesome, I just always have that nagging fear in mind that we don't want to create unnecessary work for others. I know when I pulled that wedding venue article, it wound up being more time consuming just to fix everything than it would've been just to write the thing myself!
Hey Winnie Anderson ! This is a common question even for those that look at data every day on these platforms! It can be confusing to know when to look at each one. Here is a video I made for a newsletter a while back that talks about the difference between the two.In terms of your specific case, if you have yet to dive into either, I recommend starting with HubSpot and getting familiar with the data you get there. It is honestly easier to use, and less convoluted. It will also have 99% of the data you most likely will be looking for. I have also made a graphic that helps you identify the overlap and the uses for common reporting platforms.
