When asked to share some advice with other women wanting to start their own business, Sea shared,
“Believe strongly in yourself. I think it’s also healthy to feel a solid amount of fear and stress. Use that nervous energy to extract excellence from yourself. If you wake up each day feeling a lot of excitement and a little fear, I think you are on the right path with your business.”
