Tweetable Quotes:

“What brilliance is for me, it’s your ‘you-ness.’ It’s your power, it’s your unique essence.” – Jo Gifford 

“I’m noticing people connect with the fact that when they question everything, when they really unbox it, and they go ‘what am I doing here, what is my power, what makes me unique?’ then there’s radical change.” – Jo Gifford 

“My voice; I began to reclaim it by sharing it, and I began to reclaim it, too, by owning more and more of who I am, and loving me for who I am.” – Jo Gifford
