Someone who inspires you and why: Life coach Brooke Castillo. She has taught me several light bulb moments. Such as, we are all born with the same amount of worthiness and happiness is a 50-50 game. Life is equally good and bad.
Advice to someone pursuing a career path in what you do: Education is important. But at some point you need to take action and trust the process. The best training in this industry and most industries is hands on.
