"When you're the face of a brand, you have to overcome your insecurity in order to do what you need to do to get things done. I never thought I'd be capable of leading a team or giving a speech to thousands of people and I've done all that because you have to rise to the occasion." - Joanna Vargas
"I've grown up with the growth of my company and you rally when you're passionate about something." - Joanna Vargas
