Q & A
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT YOURSELF?
My natural instinct to love—it opens up my world of people, adventure, and creativity on a daily basis. It is my lighthouse on the shore to which I correct if I go off course. Feeling love in my heart is a true blessing and continues to unfold and broaden as I consciously nurture it. I feel it’s the basis of humanity and the guiding principle of all successful relationships, individual or collective, personal or professional. I think we are all capable of it. THIS CHAIR ROCKS:MANIFESTO AGAINST AGEISM. Drop age limits!
WHAT IS ONE (BIG OR SMALL) THING YOU’RE HOPING TO ACCOMPLISH IN YOUR BUSINESS THIS YEAR?
To keep finding my audience! I feel very fruitful, and because of my depth of experience, abundantly supplied with creative solution-oriented and trend-forecasting ideas; so my goal is to search out more opportunities to share.
WHAT DOES BEING LIBERATED MEAN TO YOU?
First and foremost, I am responsible for my own liberation because there are no problems outside of my own thinking! Having said that, it means that it's incumbent upon me to detect ways in which I feel limited and correct it—on behalf of myself and all others. Ultimate liberation is loving my neighbor as myself, seeing and living beyond gender/race/class in the space of spiritual qualities which we all have equal access to.
