Jamie Kern Lima is an American entrepreneur, billion dollar business success story, champion of women, philanthropist, culture-shifter and highly sought-after keynote speaker. She Co-Founded IT Cosmetics from her living room and wasn’t able to pay herself for the first three years, while hearing countless Nos from retailers and investors, and working 100+ hour weeks hustling to keep her dream alive.

Quotes:

“It taught me the power of going with your gut over anyone else’s advice… and the power of authenticity & how you can’t fake it.”

“It’s so hard when everyone doubts you, & it’s so hard when everyone says no for years, & then you’re like, okay no is my shot.”

“What I’ve learned time & time again is, when you have this gut feeling, like it’s what you’re meant to do, like you’re called to do it.. I don’t think it’s wrong.” 

“If you’re someone getting told no, you’re someone doin’ something!” 

“I don’t know anybody who has built anything that matters & anything that lasts, without working really really hard… don’t give up.”
