  • "All these 41 years I felt wrong for explaining 'NO.' Well, I guess not anymore."
  • "I wish I had told you just how amazing I think you are and the things that you are doing for other women."
  • "Your challenge really stuck with me. Thanks for the reminder to be Bold & Brave. Maybe next time I will try that headstand."
  • "Here's to knowing someone's potential and making them get after it! I love your positivity and your kind approach. You are a breath of fresh air in a world that wants to rain on everyone's parade... Thanks for pushing me out of that comfort zone. You rock!!!"
  • "I don't know how you're doing it but it's like you are reading my mind. I really enjoy your emails, they are some of the few that I actually read. Short, concise & make fantastic points! Thanks, Bridgette! Keep em coming!! :)" 
  • "You are un-FRIGGIN-believable."
