What was the hardest lesson you learned, and how did you learn it?
Being present in the moment and really appreciating the “ordinary” joys in life. Over the last few years, I’ve experienced the highs of becoming a mother and the pain of losing loved ones. I better understand the need to lean into my life and the moments of joy that happen every day.
What is one goal you have yet to achieve?
A continuing goal for me is achieving balance in my life – still working on it!
If you could have dinner with anyone, who would it be, and why?
Warren Buffet – I’m still in the market for a good investment advisor, so figuring I’d see if I could persuade him to take the position :)
Oprah – She’s met so many inspiring people and is inspiring herself
Jimmy Kimmel and/or Tina Fey – I love to laugh
My grandmother – She’s not here anymore, but she’s one of the strongest women I’ve ever met and one of the best cooks and greatest storytellers
