“Anything can happen at any moment. Obviously, life is so precious and even if you plan everything right and do everything properly, there’s still so much out of your control. And, for me, I’m a control freak and that’s something I’ve been working on.”

“I’m definitely passionate about helping everybody but what I’ve realized, just being a woman in business, is that there are certain disadvantages and there’s also not a lot of us.”

“One of my mottos is, ‘Feel the fear and do it anyway,’ which is something I still do to this day.”

“I just love building. I love the idea of starting something new — which is why I’ve started so many new things in the past year — and just seeing how they evolve and grow.”

“Now I’m at a point with what I’ve accomplished and achieved that I kind of just want to take a moment and feel good about what I’ve built.”

“Entrepreneurship is really, really hard, and what’s going to carry you through it is believing in yourself and knowing that whatever challenge you’re facing right now is temporary and that you’ll get through it. Everything works out and everything is solvable so don’t get stuck in that feeling.”
