What’s the biggest challenge you’ve overcome in your life or as an entrepreneur?
The biggest challenge I have over come is the battle of the mind. Fear of when is the right time to start, or how to be ahead of the game. The Key to being a head of the game is getting started!
Any advice for others that want to follow on a similar path?
To be outstanding, you need to stand out. There is nothing more fulfilling than waking up each morning knowing you are living life to your full potential. Even though things may get rough along the way, never give up on your dreams! Be a go-getter and set the bar high. In life, the sky is the limit and nothing is impossible once you set your mind to it.
