Q1: If your business/career could speak, what would it say?
Life’s too short to settle for anything less than your personal best.
Q2: How do you balance your professional and personal life?
I can’t say I really do; my professional life and personal life have always been so intertwined. When you’re a business owner, who built your business from the ground up, your business is a part of you. My business is part of who I am; it’s something I feel like I never truly disconnect from. Sometimes when I'm home with my family I struggle to be 100% present, and there are times when I'm at the office, when i’m wishing I were home with them.
Q3: What is one boss move you have made throughout your career that you are most proud of?
There was a point in time where my company was cash strapped, and I had an offer for a significant cash infusion, but it came with a lot of strings, including a minority ownership of my company. Despite needing the capital, I turned the offer down because I was not ready to lose control of my company.
