“Traditional schooling does not prepare us for entrepreneurship.” – Jen

“All these little things that I took the time to reflect reminded me that I’m capable, that I can achieve anything that I want. And it just started from that moment, in that job of just being so unhappy and realizing I have the power to change that.” – Susan

“The way I look at my life – mom life, wife life, house life, biz life – is it’s a game. It’s the game of life, and I am gonna get all A’s. I’m getting all A’s in my game of life and that’s the motto.” – Susan

“Acceptance releases resistance. Acceptance is your initial step to healing, to transforming.” – Susan

“Sometimes we can’t connect all of the dots while we’re in the middle of it. It’ll be years later that we’ll look back and say ‘you know, what we thought was such a frustration actually turned out to be our biggest blessing.’ – Jen

“As homeschooling and CEOs, we are achieving every single day just by waking up, just by saying ‘yes’ to another day. – Susan

“Success attracts success.” – Jen

“When you can define and own your own happiness, without comparison to anybody else, without judging anybody else, like it’s your game, you’re achieving. The game changes.” – Susan

“Take a moment right now and just say “Good job. I’m proud of me. I’m proud of you.” Just congratulate yourself.” – Susan

“Just being grateful. I learned that from a year of burnout. Just to be so grateful and in the moment and not worry about the future and not worry about the past and realize what I can do today.” – Jen
