Memorable Quotes:

  • “As much as we want to do ALL of the things, we’ve got to have systems in place that support the business we want to have.” 
  • “Your boundaries are what you’re comfortable with and allows you to keep yourself in check and still have an amazing community.”
  • “I come from a place of curiosity…if the conversation leads to working together fine, if not they’re still an engaged community member.”    
  • “Focus on one or two platforms really well and go for depth, not breadth. Look at where you’re energized, look at what makes sense and what’s driving results for you.”
