Notable Quotes: 

            “It’s actually a strength to know that you need to hire for something that you
                        can’t actually put your full attention towards just as you would hire someone else
                        on your team to do something so you can focus on other elements of your job.”

                                                – Rachel Haley

            “I think as companies expand and grow their processes become more complex and need
                        more operational focus.”

                                                – Rachel Haley
