Key Quotes:

  • “Having it all is kind of like multitasking. They say that there’s no such thing as multitasking because really all you do is you switch your attention from one thing to another thing… And, then we constantly rotate our attention.” – Teresa Kitchens
  • “I think sometimes whenever we get into these conversations with our families, that they feel like we’re not spending enough time with them, or we’re too distracted… That it’s because they don’t feel seen, they don’t feel heard, they feel like they’re second-rate citizens. And, I don’t want my family to feel that way… and I would never want them to feel that way.” – Teresa Kitchens
  • “When I don’t listen, I am a lot. When I overpower people, I’m a lot. But that energy that I have, that voice, and the sense of discernment that I do have is something that people are attracted to. And with that, that makes me a great coach. That makes me a great mentor. That puts me in a space where I can work with a lot of people, and I love to do that.” – Teresa Kitchens
