What’s Your NativeAdVantage:
What do you do best?
I create content on a daily basis via my brand, Positively Present, that inspires people to live positively in the present.
What makes you the best?
Because I am a regular person who struggles with staying positive and present, my advice and inspiration stems from real-world experiences and is accessible to my audience.
How will you become the best?
Every day I strive to find new ways to embrace positive thinking and live more mindfully. By continuing to learn from others, I gain new insights that I can apply to my own life and share with my readers.
What are your aspirations?
Personal: I aspire to live as much as I can in the present moment without dwelling on what has past or worrying about what’s to come. Though this is the foundation of what I do for a living, it is still a personal struggle and I hope in the future, I will find more and more ways to create more mindfulness in my life.
Business: I aspire to grow the Positively Present brand through books, e-books, and workshops. I also look forward to explore more graphic design opportunities with my side project, a design studio called Twenty3.
What fascinates you?
Learning new ways of thinking fascinates me. I used to be a very negative person, and exploring a more positive attitude has changed my life in many ways. I hope to never stop learning and growing.

At home or on the beach with a good book.
Books (you can see what I’m reading here: https://www.goodreads.com/positivelypresent) and right now I’m loving anything created by Ban.do or A Beautiful Mess.
Reading, writing, music, creating.
