In a recent interview with the Entrepreneur, Lisa expressed how creating any kind of business isn't for the weak, as it puts you through many difficult situations. "The competition is so tough out there, it's not for the faint-hearted," she told the outlet. "You have to develop a thick skin. That's very, very important."

While many people might feel the need to give up in the early stages of their business plans, Lisa encourages them to see the final vision through, as that will be a sign of their strength.

“If things go wrong, you learn from it. There's the good, the bad, and the ugly, and everything really, isn't there," Lisa explained. "Sometimes it's overwhelming ... If you really get going and get on it, you'll be surprised by how much you can accomplish."

In the end, Lisa revealed that one’s overall success is measured by how “focused” they are and the admiration they have for the business, saying, "I think that if you're really doing something that you love, your passion for that is your motivation.”
