GOT A SECOND?
Who is your hero and why?
... well this is awkward. I'm going to say myself. As a 33 year old single woman, I kind of learned to be my own hero. I've learned to save myself time and time again, and to believe in myself, and to have confidence in the fact that I can do anything. But also, I am constantly very inspired by everyday people, doing everyday life. Moms raising businesses and babies, Dad's working hard to provide, and absolutely men & women who fight for our freedoms and keep us safe everyday - those are real heroes, I could never, ever be as brave as them.
What 3 words do you feel describe you the best?
Loyal, Sparkly, Exuberant
What has been inspiring you lately?
Building better relationships and being financially responsible, those two things have inspired most of my life decisions and day to day life the last few months.
What are you reading right now?
Text Messages. HAHA j/k j/k - I'm re-reading the Success Principals by Jack Canfield, because when I first started my business it inspired me so much. Reading it 4 years into business, different things are jumping out to me and I'm re-inspired in a different more mature way.
What makes you the most happy?
When I feel inspired and like there is adventure and opportunity in front of me, I am the least happy when I feel "stuck." ... and the beach.
What shows are you watching on Netflix?
FRIENDS! I never watched it before! I'm on season 5, start to finish! I've never been a TV person, so I figured it was about time. It got pretty embarrassing to see peoples faces every time someone makes a 'Friends' reference, and I have no clue what they're talking about! haha
If you could be an animal, what animal would you be and why?
(Can't say you are a dog....Just sayin ) So, I had no clue what to write, so I cheated and asked my downline - they agreed on a Lion - because they said I'm fierce and I'm very protective of the people I love. But. my best friend said a Poodle, "because they appear elegant, fancy and put together - like they're meant for high tea - but they are actually working dogs. They are great dogs for hunting, and all their fluff and fanciness serves an integral purpose to their job. So you are fancy and put together, but ridiculously hard working - and you make hard work look freaking fabulous." Also, I have really nice friends!
What is your favorite candy bar?
I'm not a sugar person... but buffalo chicken anything.. that's where it's at!
What keeps you up at night?
Googling random questions at 2am like, "How tall was Jesus?" and "What's the longest word in the English language?" haha but sometimes I wake up in the middle of then night with really good business ideas - I call these "God Ideas" - because I don't know where they came from, and they're always really good. I got a notebook next to my bed for them, because I never remember them in the morning.
What do you do to fill your cup?
Travel. I like to explore and go on adventures. A lot of times I travel alone. I love finding cool new places, and quiet spots where I can get in my own head, reconnect with myself and God.
What is your personal philosophy in life?
If you can't fix it or change it - deal with it in the most positive way possible and move on. No sense in getting all upset over something that already happened and that you can't change. Also, don't get all worried about something that hasn't even happened yet! Even if the worst comes true, which some times that's reality, just deal with it then. Being worried all that time before things happen does nothing to effect the outcome & just leaves your personal energy so negative.
If you could make one change that would have the most long lasting impact on your life what would it be?
Learning to be confident at a younger age. I spent so much of my life hating the way I looked, or thinking I wasn't good enough - those feelings still creep in now and again... maybe learning confidence at a younger age would make it easier as an adult. For me, confidence isn't natural - it's a daily choice.
Without thinking to hard, what are 5 things you can’t live without?
Jesus, lipstick, music, my people, working out... I feel like I forgot some pretty important things.
What musician, band, or album, are you listening to the most right now?
I usually play the Greatest Showman and A Star Is Born soundtracks at least once in entirety, everyday.
What do you do for fun? Hobbies? Family activities?
I just started an adult tap dancing class! I loved dancing growing up and I'm stoked to be getting back into it! I go to the gym everyday, I love being creative. I love getting together with other women in business and "talk shop" - shoot ideas, spark dreams - even if it's just over coffee, I always leave feeling inspired.
What one piece of advice would you like to leave with those reading this?
No body can tell you who you are, what you are meant for and what you believe in. Every day is a brand new chance to dream bigger, work harder, or sometimes it's a new chance to work less. You can never mess your life up to much, or be too far gone to truly ruin what you were made for. Every day is a new chance to get back on track. Only you can decide how each day will end.
