“I think this is where I was meant to be all along ‘coz I love teaching people. That’s why I started the podcast.” – Kirsten

“[On failing fast] Our successes really are births from that failure.” – Jen

“I’m learning, like, the obstacles and the things that have tripped us up, you have to really pay close attention to those because that’s usually where the lesson and the refining comes.” – Kirsten

“I know I’m inspiring a culture of entrepreneurship in our family. I just have had to change my expectation and perception of what successful motherhood looks like because it’s different than what my mom’s looked like and hers was great.” – Kirsten

“When entrepreneurs raise entrepreneurs, these kids don’t know boundaries.” – Jen

“If you know how to make it once, you can make it again even if the business model is different because the principles of success are the same.” – Kirsten

“Fail fast and make all those messes and try all those things so that you can quickly arrive at the thing that you’re truly meant to do.” – Kirsten

“If you wanna scale, you gotta scale the amount of people that you’re reaching. You’ve gotta get out of your shell and get out of your comfort zone.” – Kirsten
