“Owning a business is a lot like playing golf. When you’re out on the golf course everything is your fault. You hit a good one, it’s your fault. You hit a bad one, it’s your fault. You dump one in the pond, your fault. And there’s usually nobody behind you saying, “Well, here. Let me do that for you.” I mean you just can’t. So, owning a business is a lot like that game, which I love, because there’s just this enormous accountability.” – Ken Rusk
