“I was reliant on someone else’s success in order for my happiness to exist. And I’m angry at myself for that. I’m really, really angry at that. So when the pandemic began, I took that anger and I took that grief that I had, and I took that ball of energy that was extrapolated from that and I built a business out of it, because not only did I need to in order to protect myself, but it actually makes me happy. And I feel so rejuvenated while working in my business, even when I fail, by the way…You ask any entrepreneur, and any entrepreneur who tries their job is going to fail at least once a day. I fail at least once a day. I’m still happy getting out of that.”
