I’m a sucker for a good quote.

There’s just something about quotes that really help motivate me. Some of these I found online, some are on the momentum Chrome extension (btw, do y’all use this? if not, you need to!), and some were from the RISE business conference I attended, led by the queen herself, Rachel Hollis.

I hope you find some that resonate with you as much as they did me.
