    Thank you both of you. Laura’s story about how she first gained media attention is so inspiring. Amazing!

    There’s so much here I identify with. Especially the burning desire to start my own business and express myself. I launched my second business in May and finally feel like I’m on the right track. I also struggle with the idea of labeling myself as an “expert”. Which is crazy – given that I have 20 years technical and business experience working for top companies. But somehow standing on my own and being an expert in my own right feels different…Having said that, even though it can be scary, it’s also very freeing!

    Thank you!
