What was the best business advice you ever received?
Never miss a local story.
Don't let self-doubt dictate how you express yourself in the world. Everyone has self-doubt when they dare to do something great, don't let that hold you back from chasing your dreams.
If you could choose another profession, what would it be?
I am living my dream. If I wanted to do something else I would pursue that. I go where my passion lies and right now it is in yoga and life coaching. If that changes, so will my profession.
What is the biggest risk you've taken in your career?
So far, opening a yoga studio and getting certified in life coaching have been my biggest risks. I went all in on myself. I remember before I owned the yoga studio people would ask me about my career. When I said yoga instructor they always follow it up with "but no, what's your real job?"
If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you start?
I always wanted to go to Peru, now we're planning a yoga retreat there. Other than beautiful it's supposedly the spiritual mecca of the world.
