Darlene Mahon & Peggy Vasquez

Darlene Mahon“One of the biggest things we’ve learned is to really believe in yourself and know that you have a story to tell. Know that you have great value. And if you keep in tune with that, you won’t have that tendency to want to perform for your audience. You’ll have a tendency to want to give them the information and knowledge you have.”

Peggy Vasquez“We’ve adopted the word ‘tribe’ … meaning that everyone that speaks has a following based on that material and that connection and those thoughts and beliefs. And so those who don’t connect with us are not part of our tribe. And those that do connect with us are. What we’re wanting to do is just stay true to ourselves, our knowledge, what we have to offer and not shift that so that we’re trying to please people who aren’t naturally going to be in that group of people that we would attract.”
