9:06: What could redefining these mean for your business...and your life? This is about accepting what you want that may not make sense to others - or even yourself - in the moment. It's about listening to, and then embracing your instincts

11:09: COVID and its impact on businesses - EVERY INDIVIDUAL on your team became more of their own identity in the chaos. This showed the larger segmentation of teams and its impact on having to consider the added anxiety in the current climate. COVID allowed businesses to see that individuals required understanding and compassion for each person.

  1. Shifting your mindset that things may take time and must be done in steps
  2. Knowing (and then taking) the steps you have to take
  3. NOT putting a timeline on growth

22:14: Elise shares the ONE mistakes businesses make with their business and their brands.

25:04: The most important thing we can do in our business, in our lives, is to navigate human connections

25:13: Sometimes - the best move we can take is to simply PAUSE

27:39: There are so many opportunities. These are opportunities to redefine ourselves and understand who we really are and who we really want to be looking forward now
