Quotes from the Show:

  • “I like to say that there's no such thing as a wonder and I spell that o-n e-d-e-r, you know, there's no such thing as a self made man or woman.”
  • “The reason why we chose this concept of the way up women tour is often women [...] women are often the first people to help us all achieve The goal, whether it's our mother, mother figures, school teachers who happen to be women.”
  • “We're going to take it old school as most political campaigns or any campaign would do, even those who've done those friends and family rounds of investment. You've got to pick up the phone. You've got to call, you've got to send out emails, you've got to talk to people.
