“Don’t be afraid to fail. There are so many doors that opened for me because I was willing to throw my hat in the ring, several of which I didn’t even think I was remotely qualified for, but clearly at the end of the day, I was. Don’t be afraid to fail, throw your hat in the ring, see what’s out there.”

-Patty Lloyd
