Our Favorite Quotes:
- “I actually started my first business when I was only 14. So my friend, Jennifer, and I were really unhappy with the average babysitting rate and having to watch, I don’t know, three, sometimes four kids at a time. And we came up with an idea.” – Stacey Ross Cohen
- “I just have to express the importance of groups like Entreprenista, if you were to ask me, and I won’t forget my last point, but if you were to ask me, ‘Stacey, what do you attribute your success to,’ I would have to say, ‘when I started my business, at the same exact time, I don’t even think I have business cards, I joined a women’s networking group and I got on their board.’” – Stacey Ross Cohen
- “You’ve got to listen to that voice and pause. So slow down. I think you know, we’re all running like a million miles an hour. But we’ve got to slow down and listen to that voice.” – Stacey Ross Cohen
