“What’s really amazing is this clearly universal desire for these women, who have children, to connect with other women who have children and understand the craziness of raising kids and trying this entrepreneurship thing.”-Jill Salzman

“You need to constantly be asking people what they’re looking for, what they like, what they love.”-Jill Salzman
“We keep thinking we figure out what everybody wants and then they go ‘no, no, no this is not it. We need this.’ So it’s a constant inflow of market needs versus what we build.”- Jill Salzman
“I’m constantly walking a fine line of wanting the budget to do a million things but knowing that it needs to grow slowly, and I need to be really patient.”-Jill Salzman
“My schedule, generally, is sort of set in my head, but what happens in each day is wildly different every week.”-Jill Salzman
