Quotes: "Once I started doing well, I always wanted to give back. I've instilled that in my kids, but I think that if I had grown up where I didn't have that drive, I would've been lazier because I couldn't afford to be lazy." - Oz Pearlman "[Magic] allowed me to get a lot of opportunities that I don't think I would've gotten otherwise because of the way you build rapport with people.” - Oz Pearlman “It’s hardwired in our DNA to keep growing… Magic is amazing because it’s something that always stays ahead of what you know.” - Oz Pearlman “There are certain things you have a gift for that I would call a talent, that’s innate, and you can develop it.” - Oz Pearlman “It’s not physical; it’s mental. If someone had a gun to your kid’s head and said go run 50 miles right now to save their life, you would do it…! You can do it. You can dig deep and access those reserves.” - Oz Pearlman “A lot of the best things come out of something difficult, traumatic; they create scarcity.” - Oz Pearlman “Take on big things that you don’t know if you can do because otherwise, you’ll never push yourself on to the next level.” - Oz Pearlman Want more from Oz?
