The more I searched about what I wanted out of life, the more I was drawn to entrepreneurship. My entrepreneurial journey has been filled with great success, humbling defeats, and countless lessons learned from failure. The greatest gift adversity gave me was clarity about my personal values. I value my faith, family, freedom, creative expression, and meaningful work.

“So I asked myself…
What would it look like if I created something
I truly loved and didn’t worry about money?”
