Founder of Ladies Get Paid

How would you describe yourself in one word?
I’m a connector.

What's the scariest thing you've done this year?
The scariest thing I've done was move to Maine. It's a huge identity shift, because I'm such a city person. I'm obsessed with New York. I feel like I am New York.  I'm one of those people who loves riding the subway. I'm fascinated by people, I make up stories in my head about what I think their lives are like, and I get off the subway just having thought of a million ideas so the thought of moving to Maine was tough.

My husband and I discussed it for two years, but once we did it I realized it was the very thing that I needed. Plus, I don't live there full time. [Laughs]

What’s the best piece of advice you could give?
Own the ability to hear your inner voice. Don’t think that something external is going to guide you… not schooling, not parents, not your boss. You have it already within you, but many of us are so disassociated with that voice.

Hone the skills that give you the ability to listen, whether that's through therapy, yoga, meditation, talking to friends or just walking your dog.
