4. Melanie told Lauren to "trust the process" when they first launched SNDYs:

"When launching a business you start off doing everything on your own.As you grow and bring experts in to focus on certain parts of the business it can be hard to 'let go.' Mel's advice was to 'Trust the process.' It's not easy, but you can't do and be everything. Focus on what you are good at and do it well, and bring experts to do the things you can't."
