2. What do you love about what you do today?
I love that I have the opportunity to help people grow their business and take their careers to the next level.

I am reading a book called Conscious Golf (the three secrets of success in business, life and golf ). I love golf and I feel that it teaches you a lot about life.

I would invent a pill that cured all diseases. Health and wellness are the keys to happiness!
