- So many people get stuck in doing the day-to-day that the creativiy wanes, or is stuffed down, or like, “I just got to pay the bills so I turn that bit off.” So I like the phrase “reigniting.” – Pam
- I think we decided, when we talked about [being a female sole provider] that there’s some aloneness in that. A lot of people that we talk with and are parts of a group with, they don’t live in that pressure, especially as entrepreneuers. – Teri
- Something that’s helping me lately is going back to the concept of “soul” and remembering that my soul’s reason for being here are these certain things. I can list them out. If I return to that, then it gives me the courage to keep going with some of these other more daunting, or pedestrian, or just repetitively boring tasks of being in business. – Laurel
- A mentor told me once if im going to envy somebody, I’d better envy 100% of their life. – Laurel
- I’ve really come to believe that overcoming is not about gettting what you want … Overcoming is really about finding a way to show up for this stuff without losing myself. – Laurel
