On Military Upbringing & Early Career

Culotti has been a serial entrepreneur since she was 14 years old. 

In an interview with The List in 2021, she said the creativity just came to her innately. She feels as if she taps into previous lives and experiences. 

Davis was born in a military household and tried to understand her father's military career as a child. Culotti also shared a story about how she learned to 'observe when she's learning and speak when she's teaching.'

Davis further said, "It starts at a really young age to listen, just with your child, just to say, 'This is the routine that we need to follow.' It's not because you have to keep yourself in a routine. But if you can teach a child a routine, then they have more time to learn because they know what they're supposed to be doing."

In the same interview, she explained how Nicole Kidman's movie, Australia, inspired her.

She said, "They were talking about how they have to have a story, and if you don't have a story, you're not alive. And I really identified with that. And so for me, my story is what brought me where I am."
