I have a practice as an artist of journaling and planning ways to connect - this method has opened many amazing oppurtunities for me.
4. What is the best piece of advice you have received and who was it from?
Anything worth mastering takes practice and mindful connection.
5. What is your morning routine?
I enjoy mornings so much! I love writing my gratitude list while drinking my tea. I am very fond of nature and go for a hike at least 3 times a week. Some of my best problem solving happens amongst the trees!
6. What is your favorite podcast?
The creative superheroes podcast is definitely at the top of my list. I am a bit of a podcast junkie! Super soul conversations and Tim Ferris are also a couple of my favorites.
7. Something that most people wouldn’t know about you:
Im an introvert and was a professional dancer in my twenties. (It was all about FLASH DANCE)
8. If you could go back to when you started your company what would you say to yourself?
Thinking too far ahead makes almost anything seem impossible -which then leads me to feel anxious. So I learned to write a list each morning of the top 5 tasks that needed my attention and found that nothing was really that hard to work through - and then I started to notice I enjoyed marking these things off my list.
