- I think the underlying theme of that is that it’s hard work and you have to keep going forward. And I think that’s where sometimes we get stuck as entrepreneurs. The idea seems great. I see those things I need to work on. I don’t know how to work on. So now I’m just gonna stop. – Teri
- It used to be that you could do things behind the scenes of your business or operate your business any way you want to get where you need to get. But it’s the age of the internet now … It’s really hard to build integrity. It’s really hard to build empathy. But if you are that kind of person, you’re gonna be able to thrive in the culture of online businesses. – Pam
- What is my value? Where does my value come from? If you are a spiritual or Christian person, you know that value comes from God, and so you can connect to that. Otherwise you have to really build some self-esteem and understand that your worth comes from who you are, not what you do and/or the success or failure of anything that you’re doing in your business. – Pam
- If all those pieces are in sync, you are not your business. Your business is its own entities standing on its own two feet. Yeah. And that’s really, to me, the balance of that. The balance of a business means you have balance in your life. And if you don’t have balance in your business, you don’t have balance in your life – Teri
