Finding out who you are — what you’re good at, what you stand for, and what inspires you to travel down certain paths — is an amazing adventure. If you asked me five years ago who I was, my answer would be quite different from today. …

It’s a struggle to convey honest thoughts sans offensiveness

I have a plethora of stories in the queue. Most relate to marketing, life lessons, and self-care. I’ve worked hard on them. Yet, it’s not enough. Not for today’s climate.
