Favorite Quote:

“How do you get from a place of – moving from a place of fear to a place of empowerment, a place where you control your future, right? And I would report that the way that you do that is to truly understand your value, and to be in charge of your career and your life. Because when you understand those things, and when you are able to, and consistently taking action to protect and take care of yourself, you don’t have anything to fear, because you know that you can land on your feet no matter what.” —Blake Schofield
