Tell us about yourself
I have also been a serial entrepreneur with a passion for innovation. I am very passionate about self-development and determined to grow in every aspect of my life. I get motivated by my client's purpose and goals. I work with many passionate and inspirational people! I love the entrepreneurship lifestyle, so I am very gifted at connecting with clients who are building their dreams.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
I created a business where I can work remotely and make this career as a digital nomad. I can operate my business from across the world and have an amazing team to do it with.
What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?
I would say balancing life while owning a business was very hard for me as a business owner. Sometimes we get too focused on working on our business that we forget to focus on working on our business. This year, I had the privilege of hiring great people to be on our team this year which has given me the time to work on my business. This is important for every business owner because this will help the business grow.
