Tweetable Quotes

“The thought of joining the family business and being under the judgmental eye of my mom, my dad, my brother, and my sister, I said, ‘Oh no. That is so not happening.’ So, I actually ran as far away as I could possibly conceive, which was back to France for me. So, becoming an entrepreneur myself wasn’t something I expected to do. It’s something I kind of stumbled into.”

“Job security isn’t so secure anymore. People don’t stay in jobs for ten, twenty, thirty years anymore. It’s just unheard of. And there’s not that level of loyalty I think in corporations nearly as much either.”

“One of my favorite quotes is, ‘When you look fear in the face, it turns into the nothingness that it actually is.'”

“It’s a level of knowledge and expertise that you bring to the table. When you’re nineteen, you’re still green and still learning. So, I’m learning and I’m putting my big girl pants on and I’m trying to look professional, but I’m still not quite sure who I am yet. I think Imposter Syndrome qualifies more as Imposter Syndrome when you’ve grown a bit more, you’re more mature, you know who you are to degrees, and you’ve had some level of established profession.”

“No matter how hard someone tries to separate their business from their personal life, they are the human at the center of all of it. And it’s the beliefs they hold about themselves that have them show up fully or hide out – whether that’s personally or professionally.”

“We all deal with self-doubt at some point in our lives; no one escapes it. The trick is learning to recognize it in the moment more quickly, because you’re more self-aware, and then learning how to respond effectively versus react from a place of pain or fear. That’s the crux right there is how do I respond versus react? And that’s where the learning happens.”

“If we can take more time to pause in our day, to get quiet, to tune in to our own heart – our owns spirit in that place of mindfulness – to go to that void, that we can get more connected to our own higher self, our own divinity if you will, and let that inform us as to what’s needed now.”
