1. Always trust your gut. No matter how far along you are in your career or business, make every decision from your gut- it will never steer you wrong.
2. Put people first. Relationships are everything. The people you work with matter more than any dollar amount.
3. Enjoy it. Pause. Take it all in. Often times we get moving so quickly that we forget to take a minute and relish in the moment.
"There is a place for you and a space for you and if you follow what is innately inside of you, you're going to find it."
