  1. How entrepreneurs are usually built to work themselves into the ground to reach success, and why I had to face the hard truths about why I couldn't give in to hustle culture as I've become a business owner.

  2. How becoming a systems thinker and learning about family roles (I'm a hero child) has impacted who I have become as a business owner.

  3. How being a relational therapist with an interest on attachment and healthy differentiation has impacted who I am choosing to be as a conscious business owner and leading to healthy work/life balance (which is what we all want, right?!).
