My greatest skill is: Communication and motivation, helping people understand what’s most important to them, and what their best talents are.
I’m most inspired by: Entrepreneurs—people who create something out of nothing and strive to accomplish something better. And people who have a passion for what they do, regardless of what it is.
I’m most grateful for: Opportunity and the people around me, my team at the office, my family, my friends. Life is amazing, and those people make it that much better.
I never travel without: An open mind and my face wash.
My best Free Days* ever were: Taking a trip to Barcelona with my little brother last summer.

The wildest goal I’ve ever set for myself is/was: I haven’t figured out exactly how, but in some way, I’m going to change the world.
My biggest advice for new entrepreneurs is: Find your purpose, then join Strategic Coach. They’ll walk you through the next 500 steps.
In 10 years I will be: Celebrating growing 10x for the third time, and hopefully married and starting a family with the right person.
