Business and Life Wisdom at #BlogHer18

This year I got the chance to attend my first BlogHer Creators Summit. There was a lot of wisdom at #Blogher18! 
The event was a star-filled event- from Hollywood heavy hitters, to models, to elected officials, to CEOs and entrepreneurs, #BlogHer18 had a bit for everyone.  These quotes definitely touched me and I hope you will find some inspiration in them as well.

A great reminder: “It is OK to say NO.”

How do you structure your home?
