  1. "The fact that I've been able to just be really present with the kids and still have chill mornings with Colin and have the programs in the business, that's where it came full circle of like, oh, this is it. This is what I wanted to build." - KM

  2. "I ended up getting my foot in the door at Twitter and Facebook and speaking at these kinds of places. I ended up working with some really big names and then eventually the Marie Forleo's of the world, they came to me and asked me to start coaching their students in their program. And things really started to take off then." - KM

  3. "I have to choose one thing, otherwise I'm going to be known for nothing." KM

  4. "I was very hesitant to lean into coaches, even though all my best friends were coaches. I had little mini peer-led mastermind with coaches. They were my humans, but I was like, I'm not going to just niche down into this one coaching area." - KM
