“No one else can understand just how shitty it is to be the only person who understands how bad it is. And you have to give the answers to everyone around them.”

“If we don’t let go of what we’re holding in our hands, how will we ever reach for what’s next?”

“But what do I really want? And this is something that I do think is a better question: ‘How do I want to feel in my next stage?’”

“You are the only person who can do that (decide) for yourself as a business owner. Period. Don’t hand over your power, own it. (…) Don’t let yourself get pushed around as a business owner in distress.”

“I would suggest that women are way too fucking quick to take moral obligation when it’s just a business transaction, and that’s all (debt) is.”
