What is the best advice anyone has ever given to you?
The best advice I’ve ever received was that waiting is rarely the best decision. Waiting for someone to recognize you, give you something, etc. is not enough. Waiting for the perfect moment is an excuse to not start. You must go out on a limb as that’s where the fruit is. I have a motto now, feel the fear & do it anyway, that guides a lot of my decision making. Fear is what’s truly holding you back. Let it fuel you, not stop you.
How do you balance work with your everyday life?
Scheduling and prioritization is key. I create tasks list every week and action plans for everyday. Additionally, I pay close attention to my calendar when scheduling meetings. I do my best to ensure I have at least 2 business free evenings a week for my own sanity. When it comes to my personal life, I make time for those close to me. You make time for what you want to make time for honestly.
What are your goals? Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
My goals center around both my personal life and business. Personally, my health is a huge focus. This year I’m looking to implement a consistent exercise regimen and meal prep for my busy on the go days. If there are any readers out there with tips, contact me please!! Additionally, I want to see #HERmovement grow and become a globally recognized brand. I want to expand my blog and partner with brands that appeal to the busy bombshells of the world. Within the next 5 years, I see myself taking on more national speaking opportunities to share career development and branding tips with millennials around the world.
