Wow! It’s such an honor to be featured on Reese Witherspoon’s Draper James blog as a Woman Who Inspires. I’ve always loved Reese, but once Legally Blonde debuted, she became one of my favorites. After watching the movie about 1,000 times (literally) she became someone I enjoyed watching on the big screen. When I was contacted to be featured, I literally had to pinch myself to make sure I was reading things right. Imagine one of your favorites wanting to collaborate with you. It really was a dream come true.
Chatting with the team was so fun, and I decided to share things about who my first mentor was, my morning routine, and advice for young people wanting to be entrepreneurs. One of my favorite questions asked had to do with the advice I would give to a young person whose dream is to follow in my footsteps. To answer that, I would say think big and stay focused. Thinking big helps you to think outside of the box. This is where creative ideas, concepts and inventions are born. I would also suggest creating a vision board by gathering pictures and words that describe what you want for your future. If you want to be an entrepreneur, paste down pictures of what that means to you and how you would want to live as that future CEO. What I’ve discovered over the years is that what you focus on, you magnify in your life, so having a board will help you to navigate towards your goals and achieve your dreams.
This year, I made a decision that I would use my voice to help others live their dream life and increase in their business. That’s why this interview was so candid and real, because I wanted to give tips and share my story of what it’s like to pursue your passions at a young age.
