The best advice you’ve received for your personal life has been?
Don’t sweat the small stuff. You are exactly where you are supposed to be…so enjoy the moment.
When people show you who they are believe them.
The best advice you’ve received for your career?
You are the best marketer of yourself so if you have an opportunity to start a business go for it guns blazing, and if it doesn’t work out, finding a company to work for will be the easiest thing for you. You are that good. That was from my mother.
What did the biggest mistake you’ve ever made teach you about yourself?
That a handshake agreement just doesn’t exist anymore – get everything in writing.
That friends and money don’t mix – I know its always been said, however, when one looks at a friend in distress, you convince yourself that there is no way that “this friend” would betray me and not honour our agreement. We live and learn.
