I really love listening to Eurie because I feel like she’s just done it all. Her information is just so helpful in figuring out where you can go and where you shouldn’t go and what you can do when you go wherever you go. I really admire her attitude in entrepreneurship. I love that she explains that you can be an entrepreneur at any point in your life, and that there are constant opportunities along the way in life that you can jump into. She makes the point that entrepreneurship is something completely individual and different for everyone. The goals are different. The milestones are different. The plans are different. The teams are different. I love that explained that you can be successful in a myriad of ways—you just have to pick where you’ll best fit and thrive. And it seems that those opportunities are endless & everchanging too.
