“You can’t change who you are, but you can put that aside for certain things. For introverts, it takes a lot more energy to put forth our extroverted side. I’ve definitely learned how to do that, put myself out there, ask for opportunities and not fear getting rejected.”
“You’ve got to release things. Release the stress of perfection, release the stress of being visible, release all that and good things come.”
“It’s hard starting a business, and I didn’t realize how hard it was going to be. It was those publicity wins that kept me going.”
