If you're going to start a company, it's not going to be in the millions of dollars, but it's going to be something - for a lot of these kids - out of the trunk of their car, the same way that I did.
I can't imagine trying to operate a company banking on the fact that my logo is cooler than somebody else's logo.
San Francisco is one of the worst-dressed cities in the world, bar none.
Any self-respecting entrepreneur has borrowed money from their mother at some point.
People look great in leggings and shorts and athletic clothes.
Randy Edsall is a good, strong, decent man who is working his tail off on behalf of the University of Maryland. And there are more people that want to spend their days burning things down than building it up. At least just stop rooting against him. You know, give the guy a chance.
We need to stop making wide-body seats on airplanes, stop accommodating that, because it's not healthy.
When I tell you it's an Under Armour T-shirt, your question should be, 'What's it do?'
People say they'll pay more for something made in the U.S., but they won't actually do it.
I love Under Armour, and I would like stockholders to know that I am very committed to our company.
The idea of insider information to me is almost, like, laughable.
Everybody is an expert. But at Under Armour, I want people to control what they can control. Leave the pontificating to everyone else. Leave all that negative talk to everyone else.
I was a general business major, which meant that in any business school and particularly at Smith School, which is a very good school, you do a lot of team projects. Well I was the guy who gave the presentations for the team projects.
We are not going to do ourselves any favors by buying into what's printed in newspapers.
I didn't like the way a wet cotton T-shirt felt under my equipment. There had to be something better.
Wipe the tears away, stand up, be a man, run your business, find a way.
I realized early on that I was pretty good at organizing. A lot of it was about control. While my friends were out getting hammered at concerts, I was making money. I am a control freak.
There is some little boy and some little girl out there, somewhere, who believe that when they put Under Armour on, they can do just a little bit more.
At Under Armour, we've created a very strong culture, a culture that first and foremost is built on people.
If Facebook owns social, if LinkedIn owns business, who owns your health?
If I had been out in the industry instead of being a college kid who had an idea for another T-shirt, I would have been too scared to do anything.
People of Baltimore, if you want to simply learn a new trade, if you want to join the Foundry, it's a membership. It's like joining a gym, and you can go and meet other entrepreneurs like you. You can talk about how to get financing. You can take a class on how to sew. You can take a class and say, 'I want to be an electrician.'
We want to shine a light on this great city of Baltimore. I can tell you, I love this city.
I believe people change. I think that they can learn from mistakes.
I was always telling people I was doing great, even if I wasn't.
In getting Under Armour started, like any business, I think, number one, you need a great idea. But it's also about who you know.
I'm a big advocate of the power of positive thinking, particularly for small businesses.
We don't tell a 17-year-old kid that Nike sucks, because the fact of the matter is, Nike doesn't suck. They're actually very good at what they do.
Go find out if you can make your product. Once you make it, stop projecting what's going to happen and go find out whether your product can sell. Find out whether someone is willing to take hard-earned cash out of their pocket and exchange it for your product.
All we're trying to do is change how people think about fitness. And build Under Armour into the biggest brand in the entire land.
In my industry, a shirt and a shoe are still made the exact same way they were 80 years ago.
I love Monopoly. You know why? When I play Monopoly with you, I'm going to buy everything from Baltic Avenue to Marvin Gardens. If you get to my side of the board, you'd better roll boxcars, or you're going to pay rent.
I want people to believe in themselves. I want intellectual curiosity. I want someone who realizes that they don't know it all and that they're dying to learn.
When you see most companies get big, they want to shout about all they've done. But the consumer wants to know: 'What have you done for me lately?'
I was a not-big-enough, not-fast-enough football player who wanted a little bit of an edge on the field. I figured my own sweat, if I could get that off my body, and more importantly, the weight that stood behind it, that would help.
