02:53 - [On the ADHD discovery] I obviously must have masked it quite well and people weren't aware of it, nor was I. So, this is something that is really coming to the forefront now. And actually it only came to the forefront when I started really pushing myself to be the best version of myself.
15:15 - [On her upbringing] One of the things that's been massive for me is I don't know that I would care this much about the brain if I didn't have a parent that had so many challenges.
19:09 - [On career progression] I think my plan was to take every opportunity that came my way. I think as I've gotten older, I've appreciated that one of my superpowers is that I can bloom wherever I'm planted. Wherever I go, I create a life that I love.
50:36 - [On restoring her business] I sort of got my superpower within myself to believe that I could do it without funding, without investment, without loans, without credit cards. And that's been very liberating.
