How She Got There
"If you don’t know what your true passion is yet, take a job that allows you to learn a valuable skill set, because that is what you will put to work once you find your passion."
"Really adapt an attitude of continuous learning—always learning, always looking at stuff and keeping your eyes open."
"Try everything, move forward, surprise yourself and have fun."
"The day I found out I got the job was the best and scariest day of my life."

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."
