Q & A
WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE WAY TO SPEND A FREE NIGHT?
I love spending an evening having friends for dinner. My favorite thing in the world is creating space for people to connect, so I love a spontaneous dinner party, or friends dropping in for a glass of wine and a bite.
WHAT IS YOUR GREATEST NEED?
My greatest need is probably a team. I've worked independently for 6 years, and as I look forward in my business, I realize I need someone who is a sustainer. I'm an ideator and visionary, and I'd love to team up with someone who thrives in driving execution.
WHAT DOES BEING LIBERATED MEAN TO YOU?
Being liberated to me means to be fully present in my own life. To be present and enjoying my own skin, body, circumstances. It means taking the whole and really choosing it- fully choosing the good and the bad and the ugly- and loving in it anyways. To me, that is embodied freedom- true liberty- to want only the life I have.
