We all face challenges, but looking back, would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
Life is never a smooth road, and certainly not one for an entrepreneur. It has been an exciting, magical, and exhilarating road, that’s for sure. My passion is my driving force. I look at life and my business as an ever-changing piece of art and constantly evolving into a new masterpiece. There will never be a straight, smooth, exact path that would be far too stagnant. Obstacles motivate me to find solutions. The struggles force us to grow and step out of our way. I have learned over time to trust in my process and not expect things to be exactly how I originally planned. Struggles are self-perceived because, ultimately, there is a solution to everything. This mindset has enabled me to create opportunities far beyond my original expectations 

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?

Do you have any advice for those looking to network or find a mentor?
I advise anyone just launching or creating a brand to be very open-minded and curious and seek out a mentor with decades of experience. I have several mentors, who are all highly successful in their industry, whom I respect, and who I not only listen to but implement their advice and direction. I make myself available to their schedule and never cancel phone calls or appointments. I keep my conversations and their business to myself. Being trustworthy, respectful, and honest with your mentor or mentors is very important. I cannot emphasize this enough. Besides my business and brand mentors, I have a spiritual mentor. Being grounded and grateful and being of service will always be the basis and purpose of everything. Your mentor relationship should be sacred and trusting; A true mentor will find joy and satisfaction in your success. Strive for the best in who you choose.
