What does success mean to you?
Success means that I am living deeply rooted in my purpose. My purpose is to leave a legacy of empowerment and empathic leadership through my work and instill those values in my children.
What is your mantra or favorite saying? (If it's a known quote, please let us know who said it first!)
“It is what it is.”
What failure taught you the most about life or business? What was the lesson?
Fail forward–fail, learn from it, and do it again. Where there is failure, there is growth.
What's your favorite book - fiction or non-fiction! - in the past year?

Knowing what you know now, what would you have done differently when you were first starting out?
A dear colleague shared with me “you say yes to go and no to grow.” When I first started Maven, I wish I had this mantra engrained in me. I am leaning into saying no now.
