WHAT DID ANGIE SAY?

“For me, I can’t imagine not doing a bunch of things. I would be so bored. I would be so bored with one job and the same thing every day.”

“I credit a lot of it to sports and gymnastics. I did backflips on a beam when I was three years old. I was crazy. You don’t fear a lot when you’ve done that kind of crazy shit. So, I think for me I’ve always seen entrepreneurship as very similar. I’m not afraid to try and jump and flip and see what happens.”

“I love being a content creator. I love making a really fun reel. I love just entertaining people. Also, for me I think my goal is how can I infuse entertainment with education and create really valuable content, whether it’s personal development or wellness.”

“I always envisioned myself having a job where I could wake up and create my own hours and have financial freedom. Freedom’s very important to me.”

“I think it’s interesting because once you know your Enneagram it helps you so much with relationships. It helps with hiring. It helps to know what career is best for you. But knowing what you’re motivated by is just so beautiful.”

“I always say that entrepreneurship is the greatest personal development exercise you’ll ever do. You’re being faced with all of your insecurities, having to put yourself out there, sales, marketing, launching something and being creative. It’s so many different elements and hats that you have to wear.”

“Start messy. Celebrate the suck. Laugh when you mess up. There is no failure as cheesy as that is to say. There really isn’t. The only failure is you stopping and not trying anything. And I think that’s what we’re here to do. I really think the purpose of life is to play.”

“’Ready’ is a lie…the reality is there will never be a ‘perfect’ moment, and the sooner you realize that, the sooner you can create the life you desire.”
