You approach things from a point of not wanting to fail, as opposed to wanting to have success, and those people always do good. I just can’t do it right now [give Henry the deal he wanted].’ I said, ‘Well, I appreciate you being honest with me because if I were to sit around and wait, I don’t think that nobody beneath you is gonna call me and tell me straight up what it is.’”
