How did you get to be where you are today? I think my inability to conform to ridiculous standards and expectations of society. I don’t flourish in a cubicle, I need to be free.

Have you ever been fired? Yes and it was the best thing that ever happened to me. I am too stubborn to quit even when I know I don’t belong.

What are your real passions? I love product development and PR. I can look at any product or business and create a publicity campaign in minutes.

If you won the lotto what would you do Donate some of the money to charity, help a friend or 2 and perhaps build a small business incubator where I could help people creatively.

What do you hope to accomplish in the future? I plan on expanding my Sweet Soaps brand as well as pushing for other big box retailers to carry my DIY soap kit ideas. I think inspiring young kids to be creative makes them better in any job they hold. I also want to create other consumer goods that are not soap related.

What do you like to do in your personal life? I like to cook, draw, paint and be with friends and family. I love the beach and I will one day own a party beach house, everyone is invited.

Please give us one or two shameless plugs. Digital publishing and PR my manufacturing partners in Vermont. These are some of the smartest and toughest bad-asses in my personal network.

Please give us one plug for someone else or your favorite cause or charity. Let your favorite cause be taking care of yourself because without your health you have nothing.

What do you do to help stay your best ever? I eat right and exercise. I try to also get enough sleep which is hard when you are self employed. There is work for 10 people and my brain won’t stop talking to me.

How do you help other people be their best? I give honest opinions when asked. I don’t sugar coat anything and you can rely on me to tell you exactly how I feel about anything and everything. I encourage and support those who need and deserve it.

What is your favorite book to recommend to someone else to read I read a lot of self help and business books. I won’t name just one because I feel like each had a part in getting me where I needed to be in life and business. A topic that I feel is vital is the power of positive thinking. I wish I had mastered this a long time ago.

Tell us a secret ;) I have a 6th sense.
