Welcome to my site!
Below is my professional bio, but here's what really drives me...
Growing up, my parents, who immigrated to the United States, worked long hours to give us stability and security. However, I often felt alone and unprotected. A combination of shyness and trained in a culture to not speak up and rock the boat, I never expressed what I wanted. I yearned to have the guidance to live my dreams. I didn't even think my dreams were possible. I spent hours as a child daydreaming but rarely took action to making my dreams a reality.
As a young adult, I started taking baby steps into building a life I loved. I loved being a freelance programmer instead of taking a job. I became a massage therapist to pursue my passion and start my own business. And in the process, I stumbled upon my first mentor.
She taught me how to be a business owner, how to build a business around my desired lifestyle (versus the other way around), and most importantly, she completely believed in me... even more than I believed in myself.
This was my turning point as an entrepreneur.
