One of the most amazing holiday traditions is those that make us stop for a moment and take stock of all the things we are thankful for. Thanksgiving is special for so many reasons, but for many female entrepreneurs, it gives them an opportunity to reflect on their own business journey and appreciate all those little moments that made a difference. Here, from celebrities to small business CEOs, and many in between, female entrepreneurs share those pivotal parts of their career that made all the difference.

“I was in a high-power job but I needed to see a fertility specialist to have kids and I couldn’t take the time I needed there. I am thankful that I realized being a mom was the most important thing in my life, and left that job to find my true self and calm down. It enabled me to get pregnant, stop freaking out that I wouldn’t ever have kids, and focus on what I wanted to do for the rest of my life.”
