Why I am an entrepreneur
I think I was destined to lead and do my own thing from a litter girl. Leading is just in me, and from any job I had, I was always taking a leadership mentality even if my pay grade didn’t reflect it. I was pushed into full time entrepreneurship after being fired from my “dream job” in 2007. Best thing that ever happened FOR me professionally was that!
What I love to do when I am not working
I love traveling and going to the spa. I am truly a wunderlust! I love exploring the world and am open to more things than I care to admit.
The book I read that changed everything
4 Hour Work Week by Tim Ferris and The Obstacle is the Way by Ryan Holiday. I want to interview both of these mean soon!
Who people say I am most like
Gary Vee with a dash of Oprah and a cup of Gloria Steinem. Imagine that.
My newest obession
Well as I write this my daughter is pregnant, so I’ll be a grandma or sort of.
So the baby girl will be it and on our Instagram stories, LOL.
Why I dropped out of High School
Simple. I was bored and wanted a job. I was literally bored. My creativity was stunted – I felt trapped and kind of like a zombie. So I quit on one day and started working within a few days at McDonalds – started at $3.80 per hour. That taught me a lot of service and the rest they say is history!
