What I love most about my role

I like working on lots of different tasks and problems. The diversity of small business ownership and the needs of my clients keeps me on my toes - in a good way.

How I define success

To some extent, it's just "am I paying myself every month?" (And yes, I am). I do want to be able to grow my business, hire people, offer more thought leadership for the community, but these things need to make sense with other priorities. I have to work to maintain a reasonable "scope of success" for right now.

The best piece of business advice I ever received was

I don't recall the source of this but I have a reminder by my desk that, "You can do anything, just not everything."

What would I tell my younger self

Believe in yourself. Keep learning new skills. Take good notes.

What 2B Bolder mean to me

I suffer from a lot of anxiety and self-doubt, often called "imposter syndrome." I think 2B Bolder is about trusting yourself, believing in your expertise, and the value you offer.
