QUOTES BY TAYLOR
"I do have to take a step back and if it’s not going to be like a good fit with the brand, but if I know I’m going to have to like jump through a million hoops, if it’s not worth the hoop jumping, than there’s just no reason to say yes. So whether or not it’s the best thing since sliced bread, if I have to do too much like to make that same kind of whatever it happens to be…I do think now I look at things in a sense of, ‘how is my health going to be affected?’ 'Am I going to be stressed out, am I not going to have sleep?'" Taylor Bradford
"If you’re just sitting there like how are you ever going to get going forward you know if you can’t share what you’re going through and whether or not it’s a setback or a hurdle or whatever it might be, there is probably someone, if not you, that can give some insight." Taylor Bradford
QUOTES BY ANNE
"I think my biggest obstacle just ever, and if there’s ever an issue, it’s to do with confidence actually, believe it or not. Something I do just kind of try to convince myself, trick myself that I am confident into doing something. But the belief is something I fight almost, not every single day but if there is something that I start freaking out about it’s usually tied to; did I give enough, are my skills enough, do I know what I’m talking about." Anne Samoilov
"I always want to help people, but I’ve had to really reel myself in and do that same thing and say ‘why am I not feeling this?’ ‘Why am I not feeling it?’ And so for me there's really practical concerns, I have my daughter...there's things that are going on with her school, there might be things that are going on with me and I always remind myself of past times when I didn’t say no, and I should have." Anne Samoilov
"I started working just toward something. I wasn’t sure what it was. But I definitely saw like the day to day of what I would be doing and things I'd be creating and how I would be working with helping people and teaching, definitely teaching, always teaching." Anne Samoilov
"The easiest part is creating new things. Because I get excited about new ideas and not just my own but other peoples, so that keeps me engaged and excited in Fearless Launching." Anne Samoilov
"The hardest thing has been being myself. But just realizing ‘okay people don’t like it, whatever, they can take a walk or whatever’ and also getting over myself that anyone really cares if I’m goofy or not." Anne Samoilov
"Anytime that I feel anxious and that's as close to fear that I can think. Whether it’s related to maybe like my money goal, afraid I’m not going to reach them. What happens when people find out. It’s all that kind of stuff. It’s all very self-preservation. I’m trying to make sure that I, you know, stay as reputable and respectable as I can. That if I ever feel anxious about those things...the way that I fight it is that I just take action on something. Like I’ll just take out my to do list and start taking action and I immediately don’t feel anxious anymore." Anne Samoilov
