Nicole’s Advice

I think just keep chugging is really something that I learned at Disney is we love to push the boulder and we push it forward. And I think a lot of software people are entrepreneurs at some point they give up. And what really stood out to me at Disney that I do take in every day is just keep pushing forward.
