Mic Drop Moments

  • “I believed that to be happy I needed to achieve, but that’s not really the truth. Because even when I achieved the highest status I thought ‘Is this it? Where is the pot of gold I’ve been expecting?’” – Sylvia Worsham
  • It's hard for any woman, no matter the culture, to ask for help because we are very self-sacrificing. We're so influenced by our environment that we give, give, give, give, give. And that can lead to burnout.” – Sylvia Worsham
  • “I focus on what I can do, and what I’m willing to do. I don’t focus on what I can’t do, or what the schedule doesn’t permit.” – Sylvia Worsham
  • “Please keep in mind how much time you devote to work vs how much time you devote to your children. You can’t take that time back.” – Sylvia Worsham
  • “We live in a world of instant gratification where we want results immediately, and that’s not how you get the lasting results.” – April Roberts
  • “By giving and being there for other people we also heal ourselves.” – April Roberts
