“The other F word in entrepreneurship is flow. Everything’s easier when you’re in flow, but nobody’s telling you how to get into flow.” 

“Don’t burn your business down to change your business model. I’ve done it a couple of times and I don’t recommend it. It’s more looking at what is working and what isn’t working. How do you transform that into something that makes you excited to go to work?”

“We see a lot in the business coaching space where they assume that everybody wants to make a million dollars doing it their way. Then, when you get into that stage of ‘this doesn’t feel right to me’, you’re encouraged to believe that it’s your mindset block or you didn’t manifest hard enough.”
