Quantal Langford | Brand Specialist, Creative Entrepreneur, and Show Host

I have a lot of favorite quotes, but one recently I’ve really been thinking about is: Believe Your Beliefs and Doubt your Doubts-Jim Rohn I think many times we do the opposite. Believing our doubts so much that we give them energy. For anyone creating or building anything in life, you will have doubts on if it could be accomplished. We have to focus so much on our belief that we have the creativity, skills, and resources necessary to make it a reality. Read more>>

Andrea Bogarin-Ackerman | Artist, Art Teacher & Accountant

One of my favorite quotes is from Picasso: “Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.” In my experience, this is truly the case. We all have an artist inside, but once we get busy with life, we don’t nurture our artistic side because we fail to realize that there are many benefits that art can provide in our lives. Picasso’s quote became one of the reasons I ended up pursuing a career as an artist, even after I was already working in the business world as an accountant. Working on art helps me every day, especially during those days with many business meetings and accounting work. Read more>>

When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.” Read more>>

Xochitl Lopez | Business owner

My favorite quotes is ” Women are never, at any age, too old or too young to learn about something new that makes them feel empowered” I absolutely love this quote! Sadly, society wants us to believe we need to do things by a certain age. That is absolutely ridiculous! Do what makes you happy. Do what feels right for you. Do whatever makes you feel empowered. Live life by your own terms. You are never too old or too young. Read more>>

Maya Madsen | Founder and CEO of Maya’s Cookies

A quote I live by is “Put your big girl pants on and get it done.” As simple as it seems, being a business owner is all about doing whatever it takes to see your company succeed. Whether it means putting in extra hours in the kitchen, taking meetings on the weekends or staying late to clean up, I know it is up to me to put on my big girl pants and make it happen. Read more>>
