I apologize way too much.

Jealousy creeps up on everyone. There’s that little streak of jealousy in everyone.

I don’t think I would be where I am today if it wasn’t for my husband.

Fear is an obstacle that tests your limits and makes you realize what your weaknesses are… learn from it to make you stronger.

I’ve swum with dolphins, I’ve trekked up a glacier in Iceland, I’ve drunk wine under the Tuscan sun, and I’ve made a stranger happy.

You are your own salesperson; you’re your own manager.

I’m a very ambitious person, and I’m a very determined person… and I’m stubborn, and I think I’m very driven too! There’s a little bit of a competitive streak in me, but in a good way.

The more you know, the more of an asset you are in anything, in any field.

Pain is like a lesson... it could be a good or it could be a bad lesson- like a death, or a relationship, or when you fell down and hurt yourself. You’ll always remember when you were hurt.

I don’t like people who abuse their power!

I’ve always been very young at heart, I’ve always been the person to sit at the kiddie table when we have big family dinners! No matter how old I am, I think I’ll always feel young.

You have to visualize it; you really have to see it. If you can visualize it, and you can see yourself there, and you really think about it all the time, and you really want it badly - It’ll happen.

I can be high maintenance at times, but in a good way.

Nobody really knows how much work goes into a job until they live a day in that person’s shoes and nobody really knows a person’s story until they take the time to sit down with them and listen.

You need to be creative in life in order to be successful. In order to achieve what you really want, you have to be one step ahead of everything. Never be complacent.

Everything will play out if you just make that big step first, don’t sweat the small stuff!

I’m more of a salty person than a sweet person, so if you give me chocolate or chips, I’ll take the chips.

Doubting yourself is pretty good because you’re just stopping. You’re stopping, you’re pausing to say; let me think about this for a minute... am I making the right choices... you’re just contemplating, you’re weighing your options. Doubt doesn’t necessarily mean something negative; doubt just means you’re being precautious.

I love pasta, I’m a real Italian girl... I’m a carboholic!

A great pair of high heeled shoes... that definitely turns me on- I love shoes, the higher the better.

It’s funny because... I was never shy to perform in front of my family, or sing or dance, but I was always a very shy person to get to know when I was younger- and I had to get over that.

A human being is poor when they’re alone and they have no one around them.

The reason why we attach ourselves to things is because it’s kind of like a security blanket, you need to feel that there’s a connection so that you don’t feel alone.

I just started thinking about my age. I’ve always felt younger than I really am, and people on the street tell me that I look younger than I am. I never really was concerned about my age until this year.

Ambition is the fuel that helps me get what I need and want.

When I first started out, I’ve always known what I wanted to do, but I always had a timeline to get these goals accomplished... and because they weren’t accomplished at a certain age, I felt like I failed. But when I look back, I realize that I didn’t fail - It just wasn’t the right time for them to happen.

Forget about time... there’s always time for everything.

I can never be silent! I hate silence, I hate being alone, and when I think of silence I think of being alone.

The best thing that anyone has ever said to me is leap before you look! Just do it! If you’re afraid, just go right into it and don’t even think about it.

I love men, thank God they’re here! How boring would life be if it were just a world of women.
