Through these observations and conversations, is where she says she learns about the world.
why do you do what you do?
There is no perfect formula for living a life, or building a business, and my work allows me to meet people in all different stages of their personal or professional growth - and co-working at my spaces, or using my app to co-work at spaces nationwide, allow people to be their most productive and professional selves.
what's one thing you hope never changes?
My digital nomad lifestyle that allows me to work from anywhere, meet new people, learn from new experiences, and realize the power of perspective that comes from hearing other people's stories.
when do you feel most alive?
When I am on a plane, on the way to a new adventure! After that, it would be any interaction I have with someone where they tell me that they met someone that helped them, or that they collaborated with, at one of my co-working spaces, or through my co-working membership service app. I love knowing we're bringing good people together to do great things together!
what are you really good at, but kind of embarrassed that you're so good at it?
Traveling solo! I can live like a local completely on my own. I take random classes in new cities, find group activities, or just post up at a restaurant/bar and have dinner while observing people and my new environment.
what's the hardest lesson you've had to learn?
Being embarrassed about being stuck will only make things worse. Turn to other people for guidance and advice when you don't know the answer.
what's the title of the current chapter of your life?
My current mantra (I say this every morning during my morning meditation): Peace. Gratitude. Passion. Power. Success.
