MY FAVORITE QUOTE:
Erica’s Game Plan: “I went into it knowing that I might not make any money for a year. That year was also my deadline to make my first dollar.” And, after that first year, I’d re-evaluate. “What really helped me was that I needed to not waste energy doubting myself.” – Erica Mandy
