Definition of Success: 

The definition of success to me is consistently working towards and achieving your goals.  If you can do that and maintain and wonderful attitude and have gratitude, success is guaranteed.  I would say some of the sacrifices I have made to get to where I am have to do with how I’ve chosen to spend my time,  I’ve missed family and friend holiday times and other important dates because of prioritizing my career and not wanting to miss work related work. 

Healthy Self Esteem:

This is a tricky one, I do struggle with self esteem and self worth,  especially as a business owner some days I feel like I can handle anything and anyone and other times I second guess every decision I make.  For me it’s been very important to keep a close group of friends and just people whom’s opinions I value around. I also try to look to remind myself of the bigger picture and look back at what I have accomplished.  I do keep a journal that I use more like a checklist of goals, I don’t write in it everyday, but break down what I am trying to do and how I plan on getting there, once I accomplish something I check it off the list, no matter how small,  it helps me to feel productive and that I am trying. I’ve gotten better as I’ve gotten older at going easy on myself when I don’t achieve a goal or something goes wrong.  

Dating Advice: 

I don’t usually give much advice in this arena, other than to trust your instincts, usually they are right.  As far as dating in 2019 goes, Ladies, let your friends know where you are going when venturing into the world of online dating, it’s better to be precautious these days unfortunately. 

What’s in the future: 

I’d like to grow my business Blend Beauty Bar,  to include more indie, local and environmentally conscience cosmetic and beauty brands.  For me being an educated consumer is very important in today’s market. There are so many products out there all claiming to be the best, unfortunately we can’t always trust what we are told. Doing the research and sharing that info through my business to my customers is what I would like to do and be known for.
