I'm a huge advocate for pursuing your dreams no matter what

Because the nine to five isn't security

I spent a number of years in the start of my business with self-doubt. I had let all of the limiting beliefs others had for my life take control over me. I started to believe that the only way I could make money was if I spent a lot of time and money in school. Businesses worked for other people, but not me. It took me being on the verge of homelessness to finally wake up and realize my worth. So if this is you, I’m here to help push you towards your dream career too!
