Do you believe in work/life balance? What are some of your best tips?
I certainly do believe in work/life balance. My #1 tip would be to just breathe and take time out for yourself. Set a schedule and stick to it. Also, don’t take yourself to seriously.

Realizing that there are people like me.
What’s next for your business? What can we expect to see over the next few years?
The next step for my business is to have at least three clients by the end of the year and to have a revenue of $5,000. I have some debt I need to pay back, and that’s why the revenue is so little.
