Over the past six years, I’ve pushed myself into growth environments both personally and professionally. When I brainstormed ways to make an impact early on in my career, I realized I could carve out my own niche by using other brands as platforms.

Today, the best compliment I love receiving today is, “Wow, you’re so efficient!” Adding this skill to my roster has demanded a full 180-degree turnaround from where I was a year ago - however, to be clear I am still not perfect today.

“What can one story do for one person? If we take the formula to impact one person, and scale it to hundreds of millions of people over and over again, then we will create societal and cultural change.”
I came to a hard realization in the fall of 2016: I had no idea how to build a successful startup. After 2.5 years of pouring myself into a dream to give people a voice and build an authentic community, I found myself cash-deprived and sharing an apartment unit in my friend’s room.
Building a community is fundamentally a give and take dynamic — on any platform. Just like in-person relationships, extend an offer before making an ask to make the best first impression when you connect online.
