“As we get to the peak of our careers, sometimes we give too much and we don’t know our own boundaries, we don’t know how to say ‘no’ in a polite way that we still going to be respected. And we give, and give, and give until we burn out”. – 09:42

“When you’re really low and you really have a tough time, see it like a golden nugget because it will make you stronger”. – 11:35

“There’s a lot of different times in our life that are reflection points. I think it’s important to constantly be regrouping with yourself and checking in”. – 18:18

“Where I see my coaching clients really transform is after writing a CV. They see themselves in a different way. We are kind of crafting it in a way that makes people feel proud of what they’re achieved”. – 35:47

“There’s a huge power to setting intentions. If there was one piece of advice it would be set an intention. Be specific, be clear with yourself what you want, and then tell the universe. You’ll be surprised what comes back”. – 43:26
