My Quote on Life:
Life is not about waiting for the storms to pass….it’s about learning how to dance in the rain.
My Advice to Young Women:
Don’t be afraid to take risks, especially entrepreneurial ones, when you’re young. If you have the entrepreneurial drive, act on it now! The sky is the limit with what you can do.
How I Balance it All:
I get up early. Also, I take time for myself.
