“This isn’t just about me anymore, now [having my son] there’s substance in my life and in my heart to make the world a better place” - Patty Rodriguez

In this episode, we chat with Lil Libros Co Founder, Patty Rodriguez about the importance of getting it on your own. In this interview, Patty talks about how google is basically her BFF and how she used it to persuade MAC to create the Selena collection.

“There is no excuse to getting where you want to be and having the life you want - if you have a phone you can do anything you want”  

Patty goes on to talk about how she deals with fear and how that motivates her to get what she wants.

“Sometimes I ask myself, “Why do I feel fear?” Most of the time when you feel fear it’s a good thing because it’s your heart telling you this is where you belong. Everything worth having is scary.”

Audrey talks about being of service to your community, what that looks like, and why it’s so important.

“It’s not about being fearless, it’s about taking a stance in how you handle your fear” - Audrey Bellis
