"Hiring these remote workers was incredible because no longer did I just have access to the talent around me and the talent next to me, I now had access to talent all over the world, people who can work on different time zones so business could run 24/7, people who specialize in different things who had use of experience and that was really my first entry into that remote hiring world and I became addicted to that I really saw the power and how much it helped me grow my business"

"My biggest message the one that I am most passionate about for student audiences is about reclaiming our power of belonging. What I mean by that is that many of us at any age, at all ages, rely on other people to tell us that we belong. And I have been through some really painful experiences in my life and I have come out on the other side of them having figured out that I own my sense of belonging. I determine when I belong and when I don’t. Since I made that discovery, I have blossomed into being me and I have gained strength and confidence in being me and not trying to be who you think I am. And I want to reach people at early ages so you don’t waste time trying to be someone else and you can have more time being you."
