Knowing now what you do, what would you tell your 18 year old self?
“Slow down to speed up.” When we are younger and more immature, the impatience and emotion of business challenges can be overwhelming. What we think or perceive to be a “huge” deal, could just be a small bump in the road. Take a step back, think through the challenge and act with intent and purpose.
What brings you the greatest joy?
I absolutely love seeing members of my team grow, succeed and overcome obstacles in their way. Managing a team of talented and ambitious individuals is definitely the most difficult, but also most rewarding part of my job. Being a strong leader and coach takes a tremendous amount of time and dedication. Being able to witness the progression of individuals on my team is absolutely my greatest joy in business.
