Words from Krista & Lindsey:

"There was this just pull to consistently sit down and do this. I mean for the first 6 months we were on our closet floors just talking into a janky little recorder. And to do that multiple times a week when there’s no shiny thing at the end of this that we knew of, and there was no money coming in for it, we both had full time jobs and were running around, but we were pulled to this thing. I've never been so consistent with something in my life."

"I feel like throughout my entire life I was fighting the person that I was because it wasn't accepted or the typical. And so kind of like going with it and accepting all of the things about myself that I was fighting for so long."

“I think it's doing the little actions that lead up to overcoming the fear. It doesn’t need to be so much at one time. I think people often times get scared because they’re like ‘Okay, I wanna start a blog. I don’t have a photographer, I don’t have an editor, I’m really nervous, I don’t have a lot of content’ – it doesn’t start that way. It starts with one little action, so taking the small baby steps and not putting any pressure on it to become anything, because if you’re already putting pressure on it to become something, then you’re not in it for the reason in the first place. It’s not that passion that you want.”

“I think you need to have moments in your life where you’re reminded what’s real and what’s in your mind – what’s programming. So just getting out and having more experiences, as many experiences as you can to kind of get yourself outside of yourself to realize what’s really important. If fear stopped everyone, we wouldn’t be doing anything. And you kind of get what you give, so if you’re fearful, and you’re not gonna go for it, then you’re not gonna get it.”
