- [00:03:14] “I could have gone through the process of trying to figure it out myself but I’m a really huge proponent in not recreating the wheel so work with an expert in that field who can help you with that.” Beth
- [00:06:53] “Sometimes I get the superwoman complex where I can do everything myself. And usually what happens is I put myself last. So I’m saving everyone else but I’m not paying attention to my own kryptonite. I’m not paying attention to my own self and so what that virtual assistant helps me do is put myself on my to do list.” Beth
- [00:11:39] Beth explains her system of helping women decide where they want to be in their career and how to get there.
