“I think I have to start with a reminder to myself and a saying I liked to remember as I started my college journey. "Small wins add up," is something that I like to think a lot about. It's something I came to realize in high school. This idea that to get somewhere far, you need to take the first step and you really need to take small steps in order to accomplish something big.” – Josh Kim, founder and CEO at The Cubby
