I know this is not an easy job. What drives you?

What drives me is understanding how powerful and joyful each and every person in this world can be. Knowing that with the right mentorship and guidance, every human on earth is capable of living out their vision and accomplishing their “impossible” dream.  

I have seen some of the most incredible transformations and those memories will never fade!

None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? What lesson did you learn from them?

One of my first business partners named Jeff.  He taught me what it takes to build a business online. How to write an email. How to target an audience. How each word impacts the psychology of a buyer. I am grateful for his guidance at my beginning stages of my career online.  

How do you push through your worst times?

When I am constantly feeling overwhelmed, and have been dealt a new hardship or challenge, I stop and ask myself 3 questions.

“Why are you feeling overwhelmed right now”? “Does this reaction benefit the vision for your life”? “If you give up, what consequences will you experience”? It is my way of taking full responsibility for my thoughts, choosing how I feel, and leaving all excuses and stories at the door.  From here, I set a strategic schedule that empowers my purpose in life.

I workout, meditate, journal, speak with a mentor or counselor, start a new project, and trust the process.
