Quotes of Impact

[02:41 – 02:59] “We believe that as women reach the age of 40, 50, 60, they’re just starting to settle into their power and we are passionate about helping mission-driven women who are making a difference through their online businesses to scale and impact and profit.”

[03:47 – 04:12] “When women have money, they share wealth. Women also naturally create win-win situations. Typically, the patriarchal society teaches women to be the caregivers and it teaches men to go out and make the money. Both of those roles are fine when not taken too far, but what happens is it does a disservice to all of us.”

[04:41 – 04:50] “It is so exciting to help these women bring their dream out into the world and then watch them impact so many others.”

[06:42 – 06:47] “In general, women want to make an impact and men want to make money.”

[08:21 – 08:32] “The money, the revenue in our business, is the oxygen of the business. You have to have that because if you don’t have that, you’re going to run out of air and that means you can’t have any more impact.”

[10:24 – 10:38] “In order to feel wealthy, in order to feel that wealth of your personal power and all of the experience that you bring to the table today, you have to tap into that. And you also have to know what your values are.”

[13:27 – 13:34] “Just because you’re good at something, doesn’t mean that you enjoy it and does not mean that it’s fun. It does not mean that you’re supposed to do it for the rest of your life.”

[14:59 – 15:19] “It’s a lot more efficient and effective to come in and have a clear roadmap. Otherwise, it’s like you’re looking at a 1000 piece puzzle all laid out on the table and you’re trying to put that together and maybe there are some pieces missing. You’re not going to get the whole picture because you just don’t have that whole strategy.”
