What was the best business advice you ever received?

You should start out with what you can afford and manage your debt. That is why I decided to start with a small, exclusive studio packed with a lot of options.

As the economy slowly improves are there tips you would offer to new business people about keeping a business healthy?

Healthy business owners promote healthy businesses. Focusing on your mental and physical well-being through a structured exercise program can return more energy and clarity for important decisions.

What is your favorite pastime?

A brisk walk on Anna Maria Island enjoying the fresh air and beautiful views of the Gulf of Mexico.

If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you start?

French Alps, where the air is clean and for the most part, all the food is unprocessed. These are the healthy habits that I encourage for my clients.
