A. (Janne) Invisibility… I guess that’s more of a magic power….

Q. What is your motto?
A. (Angie) Well when apprehensive about something I want to do or achieve my sister and I often joke that 'dumber people than us have done bigger things than this'.Sometimes we are our own worst enemies, and it's good to keep in mind that plenty of ordinary people have achieved greatness.
