“For my work in social enterprise and entrepreneurship, it [COVID-19] has meant thinking about how to bring things online and virtual and still create meaningful experiences.” (07:39)  

“I think what we didn’t see that we are seeing now is companies that prioritize impact as much as they do profit.” (19:52)  

“Now we say our mission is to make social entrepreneurship more accessible, actionable and transformative.” (29:00)  

“There are great platforms that let you record both sides so you get the best quality from both sides. And that’s a huge innovation that was now made available to everyone whereas before that you’d have to ask your guest to record it on their side. Now it’s much more seamless.” (37:14)  

“I think of it [Clubhouse] as a podcaster’s playground. We already know we love audio. So to be able to connect to people through audio, there’s really an authenticity to that.” (45:51)  

“I love the social impact space. But it will not serve me and the many people who will come after me unless they find a viable path. So we have to stand up for that so we make it easier for the next person.” (52:53)
