what is the best advice you've ever been given and how has it shaped you and your business?

My high school professor wanted me to be a physicist at a time when women were not encouraged to enter that field; he told me "you can be whatever you want to be". So I love that perfumeing is biology, chemistry, psycholgy and physcis! Thx Mr. Killian:)
