What are you passionate about?
I am passionate about experiencing the greatest adventures life can offer by seeking mastery in every endeavor, while enjoying the journey along the way, and helping others who are committed to doing the same. I believe that developing creative, visionary ideas and starting, growing and expanding small businesses from those ideas is the path to the greatest adventure we can create professionally and for the world. Navigating others on their journeys is what truly ignites this passion.
What one piece of advice would you give to an early stage startup regarding your area of expertise?
It is the lesson that I learned from enduring back-to-back record-breaking Category 5 hurricanes, and that is, to have the self-awareness and the courage to recognize those moments when you may not have all the answers, and to ask for support from your tribe in those times, realizing that going it alone is a steeper climb.
What do you like best about mentoring at the Preccelerator?
I love the Preccelerator because it is a community of the smartest, most visionary, driven, creative, success-minded people who seek to make a difference in the world through their business ventures. There is such a high level of excellence and wonderful, supportive people; if I can offer a perspective or make a contribution that accelerates their pursuits, then I am fulfilled.
