Quotes:
“I learned within the first week that I did not want to be a professional dancer. And that was a big shock to me, because part of going to school is trying to figure out your vocation and dance was so new to me I was really considering the idea that I was going to be a full-time dancer.”

“If you know how to sell online, you’ll never need a job”

“What if I created these very public experiments to sell random stuff online and sell a lot of them. And I’m going to use that as my PR, as my buzz to market.”

“I think everyone does have the time to learn something new. And I think, right now, the death of that, is Facebook scrolling”

“I feel like I was constantly reading, constantly taking courses and I wasn’t taking enough action every day.”
