“I feel like I have such a better sense of who they are as kiddos and as individuals than I ever would have otherwise.” – Angie
“[On managing her business and homeschooling] I recognized I cannot start growing and really onboarding and managing them as I’m also learning to homeschool. It’s something I can do later, but right now that’s not ideal.” – Angie
“We understand that clarity is usually comprised of a whole lot of pivots and that pivots doesn’t mean failure. Pivot means you’re making a conscious decision that that solution no longer serves your family for whatever reason.” – Jen
“Go with the experts. We don’t have to forge the path every single time.” – Angie
“I have learned that my relationship with my kiddos is far more important than what they learn.” – Angie
“We all deserve to be in many, many places, and as women we need to be in many, many places to have our voices heard. And typically, people will invite you but for the most part, you need to step up and ask.” – Angie
