"Always follow your gut instincts, have confidence in your own abilities, and remember that all leaders, women or men, are a little bit scared some of time… Put your efforts into areas you’re passionate about and persevere. Remember it’s a marathon, not a sprint."
"To be a strong leader, you have to have a very clear vision, you have to be extremely authentic, passionate, and you have to be willing to go the distance on your own and with your team. Always remember that business is about people: They are your No. 1 customers, so be kind to them. I have a poster in my office that I live by: 'Work hard and be nice to people.’"
