"The thing I learned…was listening to what people ask you for. If they're needing you to solve some kind of problem for them, if you can create a product or a service that solves that problem for them, that's a really great way to go about creating something."
"I think we are better at knowing what we've done in the past or what we are struggling within the present, but we have a hard time knowing what it is we're wanting in the future."
"It can be easy for us…[to spiral] into a place of negative self-talk and you kind of just want to put this label on yourself…I'm kind of on the mindset nowadays…that you really can't have success without failure. It's just part of it. It's part of the journey."
