  • “Start before you’re ready. Do it even though you don’t feel it because it’ll shift your brain chemistry.” [Danielle]
  • “You got to be a little delusional, and you can’t let people say things, or they’ll write you. Just have to tune out the noise and stay focused. And it’s about how bad you want it.” [Danielle]
  • “There are several moments in your life where you reach a certain point. And then you’re like, wow, I’ve graduated or elevated past that place. What’s next.” [Danielle]

Key Takeaways:

  • Understand that sometimes, your dreams may take you places you never expected. Be open to new opportunities, even if they seem daunting or far away.
  • Set ambitious yet achievable goals for yourself. Even if they seem lofty, with hard work and dedication, you might surprise yourself by surpassing them.
  • Trust your intuition and leap when it strongly calls you. Even when there’s uncertainty or fear, listening to your gut can lead you to your rightful path.
  • Tuning out negative voices and focusing on your path is essential. Remember, your dedication, focus, and how much you want to achieve your goals truly matter.
  • Always be prepared for growth and evolution in your personal and professional life. Don’t shy away from exploring new chapters and asking, “What’s next?”. Life is about progression, not stagnation.
  • Accessibility is key. Strive to provide services that cater to a wide range of budgets without compromising on the quality of your work. Everyone deserves to experience your services, regardless of their budget.
  • Whether it’s in your pricing, the services you provide, or the way you approach your business, being flexible can help you navigate changes and opportunities that come your way.
