Tell us about yourself

My mother was diagnosed bipolar, and due to her diagnosis and other traumatic events in my childhood, I had a lot of anxiety and PTSD from it. I knew if there was a service that could help us be great past our trauma and help us live through what we survived, still able to make a difference in the world, the world could be a great place. Hence, igniting the vision for this practice when I was 14 years old and then finally founded it in my early 20s.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

Running whyvive in itself. This vision was once upon a time impossible. Now we're really making it happen for better mental health for creators while they ignite their visions.

What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?

Learning to accept the way people are. Sometimes you will get hurt in ways you never wanted to get hurt. But you must keep in mind the mission and all the souls you're helping.

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

Be clear on why you're doing it to get you through the great and eh days, set big goals for a big difference but care to a different level on how they're executed (please be honest in your work), and don't make it bout you - make it about the problem you're solving.
