    I am a long time fan of Elva Fields and her story is inspiring. This take away is sticking with me, “Never mind what anyone else is doing, just keep your head down, work your hardest, be patient, and focus on your own ideas and intuition.” I need a daily reminder of that. Fantastic article.

    Her best advice quotes are so darling and unique!

    My other favorite part of the post was “Keep going … as long as it still brings joy.” I heard an old Freakonomics podcast recently on quitting (http://www.freakonomics.com/2011/09/30/new-freakonomics-radio-podcast-the-upside-of-quitting/) and why it may actually be good for you.

    I think too many people push through because they are in their ‘dream job,’ but the truth is – dreams change. Or maybe the reality of our dreams wasn’t what we imagined. Don’t give up if you’re going through a rough patch, life is never easy, but always check in to see if what you’re doing makes you happy at your core.

    This is a beautiful interview. She shares some great insight that so many forget when they are starting a business. Will be sharing some of her quotes with others.
