What do I do best?
Assess a complex need and tackle a problem from the ground up resulting in a clean comprehensive solution and simplified process. This chaos to clarity process has been proven with business processes, project management and overall workflow processes. Similarly, this overflows into my home-life where everything flows with ease and calmness, resulting in clarity and success for all involved.
What makes me the best version of myself?
The best version of myself is when I’m able to make a creative contribution in the design of a product, project or task and show this thorough by working together with all parties involved to completion. The more creative the contribution, the more fulfilled and inspired I become and this is often contagious. This again, works for my work, business and family. However the key in this being the best version of myself is when a conscious effort of kindness, fairness, and good intentions are a part of the mix. With this formula, I’ve found that all plans happen with ease and success 100% of the time.
What are my aspirations?
My personal goals focus on my family and ensuring I enjoy every moment of my children’s celebrations, ensure they are well prepared in school, in life and will be prepared to ultimately make a valuable contribution to society. Part of this is ensuring my personal success in my career, maintaining a healthy outlook on life and ensuring my compass/direction is in tact. My business desires are to build a strong equity in a clean living consumable product and build this platform for the long term.
My Biggest Success?
My greatest success is the contribution of well-being for my family. I have family members, young and aging, who have become gravely ill in the recent past. With the years of experience of wellness options, coupled with the understanding of technological advances and what’s available, I optimistically set my sights on contributing to their well-being with a full recovery. With this, there have been several instances where the odds of their recovery far exceeded the chances. I am grateful and in awe of this process and continue to use this technique when developing products that add great value in meeting the needs of the end-user.
My Most Challenging Moment?
My most challenging moment was deciding to leave a long term company rather than relocate to the East Coast. This would of meant relocating my entire family back East, which was much further away from our extended family as well. The downside was by not taking this job, I essentially lost the senior standing that I held in the company and the amazing benefits that resulted. In the tnd, this inspired me to move beyond complacency in my career and take control of my future gains through these actions. The best decision I ever made.
Do it right the first time.
My Favorite People/Role Models?
There are two personal and business role models that come to mind. The first is Mother Teresa and not only because of her charity work, but her humility, unconditional love, and certain faith which resulted in a true success in all her missions. Secondly is Oprah Winfrey, because she worked hard from the ground up and continues to pay it forward through her generous contribution to girls and women causes worldwide.
My Favorite Places/Destinations?
I find my greatest inspiration when I’m in nature and in particular the mountainous areas of California and Northern New Mexico. The air, the scents, the forest all play a special part in my rejuvenation and inspirational restart.
My Favorite Products/Objects?
I love gadgets, and mostly those that have multiple functions or uses. I also am always in search of the latest technologies available for use in a clean and natural way of living.
My Current Passions?
My current passions focus on the new business opportunity’s that have been presented to me in the recent months and the successes that have been achieved in such a short period of time.
