Tweetable Quotes:

“Rejection in itself is more harmful than like any kind of physical pain.” – Tyler Bothne

“Even if you're failing forward, but you're still showing up. So it's the whole analogy of getting on the bike all over again. Because you know, you fall over, you just get back up…just making that choice to show up no matter what the outcome is for that day.” – Stephanie Reed
