Memorable Quotes:

  • “We had to figure out, okay, well it's a different world. What do our people need? What are they looking for right now? What can I provide? We came up with so many different products and services during [the pandemic]. Did they all work? No, but we just got scrappy.” — Stacy Tuschl
  • “So many times we just expect things to be easy, and we expect them to have gone faster… And when it doesn't work that way, we think it's broken. I'm broken. That strategy doesn't work. That coach doesn't know what she's talking about. And it just comes down to, what responsibility are you going to take in that part?” — Stacy Tuschl
  • “Sometimes you see somebody with half a million followers, and then you find out they jumped on Instagram when it first came out. And I've only been on Instagram for like two, three years. So how in the world could I expect the same type of results when I wasn't putting in the same effort that they were putting in?” — Stacy Tuschl
  • “A lot of people compare themselves to the folks on the internet who have a big following, and they don't realize there's a team of people creating one post. There's hours and hours that go into it. I see it because we do it for our clients. So I think that is challenging for a lot of people.” — Andréa Jones
  • “A lot of times people repurpose [content], but they repurpose it where it's literally taking what I just said and typing it out. And the way that you speak on video is very different from the way you're going to write in a paragraph. So we always have to change for the platform or for what we're actually posting.” — Stacy Tuschl
  • “I love repurposing because I think a lot of people look at social media as if you're creating content specifically for Instagram, but you're really taking your body of work and just expanding it as much as possible.” — Andréa Jones
