LuAnn Nigara and Andrea Liebross’s Ah-Ha Moments

“That future you all she’s filled with is enthusiasm, and wisdom and knowledge. So big thinking comes from a different place than today. It comes from that future you.” – Andrea Liebross

“A big thinker isn’t immune to limiting thoughts, a big thinker just understands, ‘oh, I can choose to put that one aside and have a different thought about this,’” – LuAnn Nigara

“There are times when you’re set up in every way for a great opportunity, except the money. And if it’s a really good calculated opportunity, you can’t not do it because of the money.” – LuAnn Nigara

“You’ve got to have monetary support. You’ve got to have life support. You’ve got to have business support, and you also have to have time support—you have to have protected time.” Andrea Liebross

“[Big thinking] is like the big umbrella. And then you need the tools, the strategy, the system’s below to support that big thinking.” – Andrea Liebross

“Your business is only going to grow at the rate that you’re growing personally.” – Andrea Liebross

“The messy middle is always there, but it’s navigating it with more efficiency and more clarity, and more more speed.” – LuAnn Nigara

More About Andrea Liebross

As a certified business and life coach, Andrea’s known for helping high-achieving women make the shift from overwhelm to freedom in both their personal and professional life.
