On this episode:
-How Samantha measures success and the motivation behind creating Origami Day.
-The struggles she faced when she started her business and how she overcame them.
-Why she created a simplified planner and prefers them to other planners.
“You have to want to run your business. If you don’t have a passion for it, don’t even go down that road.”
“How you spend each day is how you spend your life. You have to decide if your life is worth more than your paycheck”
“Our time is finite, a box on a planner is only so big, which is much more connected to the reality of our days.”
“Burnout and work like balance isn’t a personal problem it’s a company problem and a cultural problem.”
