Quotes:

“There was a large part of my life where I really felt inadequate in what I was trying to do with my life… and honestly, it really held me back for a long time…”

“When we are doing work that we really believe in and we aren’t seeing the results… we often don’t realize that we are actually just growing the roots of the business, not failing”

“When the iPhone came out I was really excited to create an app that didn’t count calories… because often times when we are looking at an app that counts calories we become really restrictive… and we begin to build a negative association with those numbers”

“I think that there a lot of ways to be influencer… there doesn’t always need to be a face that is linked directly to a cause… and in some cases that is when you know that you are creating the biggest impact”

“The second that we really lose faith in ourselves is when everything begins to fall apart”
