"The truth is nothing happens overnight, the transformation is a journey."
"And I will tell you this, even though my "following" dropped, our business is the most successful by a longshot than I was with any other business prior even though "Instagram" doesn't reflect it."
"But at the end of the day, just be authentically yourself. differentiate yourself, make sure your message is your message. And that's one thing that I've had to do really, you know, work on is removing a lot of the girls that are in my line of work, not seeing their social feeds because it's so funny how, you know, you'll see them and you're inspired by them. But all sudden, like their message, like you start speaking it and you think it's yours and you're like, wait, wait, wait, wait. And it's just natural because you read it all the time. So make sure that your voice isn't so and so's voice."
