1. What words of wisdom would you offer to other women? To believe in yourself & have faith. 2. What is the most valuable way women can support each other? I believe the most valuable way women can support each other is by giving each other the benefit of the doubt. So often when someone is different from us, we tend to be suspicious of their motives, but if we give each other the benefit of the doubt, we are giving them a chance. 3. Is there an “aha” moment or experience that defines who you are? The moment when I had the vision to create with the slogan “Have Some Fun Today.” Since that day 8+ years ago I haven’t looked back and I feel such a purpose around creating a truly inspiring body of work for all people. 4. What is your favorite mantra, favorite saying or words that keep you grounded? Have Some Fun Today! 5. What’s your mission? To make people smile and feel connected to each other. 6. What do you consider women’s main asset? The ability to multitask. 7. What do you consider women’s main threat? Other people’s misperceptions of her. 8. What three things do you recommend that contribute to your success? Belief in myself, being open minded, having laser focus on what it takes to get the job done efficiently and always doing what I say I will do. 9. How do you want to be perceived/remembered? I’d like to be remembered as someone who shared her gifts to bring joy to others and to be a role model for others to break free from limiting beliefs to turn their dreams into reality. 10. What is the best advice you have received? To: Have Some Fun Today – (from my dad.)
