Candice Thibodeaux | Author, Speaker, Mindset Strategist

One of my favorite quotes that I’ve also adopted as a life mantras is “Work harder on yourself than you do on your job”.

One of my favorite sayings is “Hustle beats talent when talent doesn’t hustle.’.I like this saying because someone can be more talented than you, but they have no hustle in them to make a living off of theirs talents.It takes a lot of work, dedication, and patience to make your own money without having a 9-5 as a safety net. If you don’t hustle you don’t eat. Staying on the grind is what gets you to the top quicker than any talent you may have. Read more>>

Tisu Banda | CEO & Founder | Lead Hairstylist

One of my favourite quotes of all time is “No one is you and that is your superpower”. This quote has helped me stand firm in who I am and what I have to offer the world.

If I don’t look at the finished product and think to myself, ‘Damn, I did THAT!’ then to me that is motivation to do better next time. Read more>>
