Talk is cheap, but getting some solid advice is priceless.

At the 2014 Empact Showcase Legacy Event, a celebration of dynamic, young entrepreneurs from across the country, we set out to learn how some of these founders got started and what they’ve learned along the way. Our main question: What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?

Watch this short video for a dose of inspiration, and share your own best advice in the comments section below.
