What’s your biggest accomplishment? My biggest accomplishment has to be starting my own business at the age of 23. Though I have just started and it may be small, there are so many opportunities!
What are three books you would recommend to our readers? Finding time to read in my somehow always hectic schedule is one of the toughest pastimes to fit in! When I do choose books over the Internet, Instagram, or jewelry making, I tend to go for more of a “self-help” type of book- I admit, I’m a sucker for those! Here are my three favorites:
- Miracles Now by Gabrielle Goldstein
- The Secret by Rhonda Burnes
- The Body Book by Cameron Diaz
What’s your advice to someone interested in starting their own business? Don’t resist your passion or ideas. Don’t doubt. Yes, there may be many times where you go “what am I doing?” but that’s the beauty in it. If you had the idea to start your own business, it is a journey you must take.
Where do you receive inspiration? I get inspired by seeing how far people have come in such a short amount of time. It amazes me that when someone finds their passion, everything falls into place (in a matter of time). Seeing other people’s journeys gives me light and hope that I will be at that point, too.
If you could have one famous entrepreneur as your mentor who would it be?
Oprah hands down. She is everything I inspire to be!
Do you feel your life is balanced between work life and personal life? What is your favorite thing about running your own business? Honestly, yes and no. Between working full time, having my own business on the side, and having a social life…my life can be kinda crazy. But, I try my best to balance everything so that at the end of the week, I am content!
