“Lilly’s advice. Mentoring anyone is hard. But mentoring this many people, doing this many things – is quasi-impossible. Lilly did it. Lilly did it her way, while still remaining in the confines of our system. She managed to drop at least one nugget to each person she met, and they’re all appreciative.” Weston Bergmann -actor, and serial entrepreneur. Watch Season 4 Here!
