- It was very important for me to trust in my manager. —Jaak Roosaare
- Before the economy grew, there weren’t enough goods, no one really needed salespeople. —Jaak Roosaare
- I see that students focus too much on the product and not enough how to sell it. Sales skills is the number-one thing. The second thing is the vision. You can be in any country and start something, and bring it global. —Jaak Roosare
- Learn where you’re going to put your money first before you invest your money there. —Jaak Roosaare
- You always need to make more than you spend. You should always keep at least half of what you make. —Jaak Roosaare
Jaak’s final thoughts: Don’t wait for a moment. Just start working where your passion is. If that’s where your focus is, magic things happen.
