“From what I’ve watched over the last decade, the next important thing for female entrepreneurship is men. Men are going to be one of the most important facets of female entrepreneurship coming up, because we need their support, we need their help, we need their guidance, and we need them.”
“Our websites are essentially 24/7 virtual salespeople. Making sure our websites feel like ‘us’ is, in my mind, one of the most important aspects of it.”
“We were committed to building this business and building this community. That meant more to us than getting a ‘no’ from somebody.”
