 How do you maintain your integrity in an otherwise very competitive and sometimes unscrupulous industry, as a business at times can be cut throat?
I always try to remain true to myself. I’ve always been a person who stays the same so that I never have to switch up in different situations. I keep my values in mind and what initially motivated me to get to where I am today. Lastly, I think about how I want to be remembered. Suppose I feel comfortable with my actions and not make decisions based on other people’s expectations. I place myself in the future
by thinking in hindsight that can provide perspective and clarity on how I would want to act.
What advice do you have for others who have THE dream?
My advice to anyone else who has “THE dream” is to create an impact. You are a gift to the world, and there are things the world needs to see, hear, and feel from you. Don’t just think, do it. To create impact, the union of thinking and doing is a necessity. To pursue your dreams, you must activate your thoughts by putting in the work to achieve them. There won’t be any handouts or unique formulas to achieve your dreams, so create your formula. Lastly, don’t give up when someone tells you no or you run into a dead end.
Failures are only failures if you don’t learn from them.
How difficult is it to maintain a work-life balance? What measures do you take to ensure that you have that?
I have recently started writing things on a calendar to see where my time is spent each day. I try to treat my work life like a M-F job to spend my weekends with my loved ones. If there’s nothing planned for the weekend, I will try to get ahead with either schoolwork or business-related activities.
Would you consider yourself a driven person? What makes you a powerhouse? What is the source of your strength?
Yes, I do consider myself a driven person when it has something to do with my passion. My passion for helping others in a way that fuels me to want to do more makes me a powerhouse. When you want better for others, you do better! My strength comes from my support system, my battles (US Army co-workers) injured with me, and those that perished.
What are some of the things you do to wind down and relax after grueling events and preparations for them?
The events that I attend are no way, shape, or form grueling for me. The process of preparing for an engagement is like practicing giving a presentation to strangers. I try to treat it like I’m playing in a basketball game in front of thousands of fans that I may or may not know, and when it’s over, I start preparing for the next one. If I did do anything, it’s to talk with my partner about what I could’ve done better for the next one.
