"[00:16:16] "...we never give our brain this what I think is the most magical space for the brain, which is to daydream and to just think on its own."

"[00:07:25] "...I think that the wisdom around the day of rest is that you need to separate work and rest. And the interesting thing about technology is that it blurred every boundary. You could work from the beach, you could work from your bedroom, you could work from anywhere, which, of course, you know, has had its benefits."

"[00:40:59] "...I think that the more women that are funding projects, the more women that are leading and the more women that are creating environments. So women can be mothers and in the workforce, the better. But I feel very hopeful."
