Get Inspired by Emily

 * "I was very clear on what I was looking for, which is definitely my recommendation for others who are kind of following in that path, is get crystal clear on what it is that you're looking for. And then once you are crystal clear on what that is, when the opportunity presents itself, it's a no brainer."

 * "Something that was a really difficult transition for me was this idea of this huge laundry list of things that need to get done. My hardest transition in this is realizing that there will never be a day from now until the rest of forever where I get to everything on the to do list."

 * "For me personally, passion is everything. That's at the heart and soul, at the center of what we're doing. I really do believe in pilates, and the power that it has to heal people's bodies and for the longevity of the rest of their life. I believe in that."

 * "If I were to go open up a Papa John's, am I super passionate about Papa John's pizza? No. Could I open up one of those and be successful? Absolutely. But, for me, especially going back to my reason why I even made the shift and what I was really looking for, I wanted something that was more fulfilling."
