How She Got There
How She Got There: Christine Stoddard, Founder & Creative Director of Quail Bell Press & Productions
"Being creative alone is not enough. Staying organized is crucial."
"The world needs more people who inspire and take risks—be one of them!"
"Don’t let anyone tell you you’re not capable to do something because of your age, and that includes yourself."
"My best advice is just really stay open to what opportunities show up because they are often those that are least expected."

"The amount of major responsibility I was given only a few short weeks after starting was pretty surreal, but at the same time it was exhilarating because it gave me a chance to prove myself right away."
"I think I’ve just found myself where I didn’t expect that I would end up."
"You have to get more comfortable with experimenting and putting out a hypothesis, and you have to be willing to fail."
"Having the ability to do whatever we’re most passionate about is really incredible—every single day I wake up excited to go to work."
"You kind of assume that someone will teach you everything you need to know, but I think you really have to be savvy and ask a lot of questions."
"You cannot rely on others to determine how you feel about yourself."
