I hope to still be doing what I do now … but hopefully on a much larger scale.

What’s the best career advice you’ve ever been given?

There are two kinds of people in the world: those who give and those who take.

What advice would you give your 22-year-old self?

Start now, don’t wait, dream big and don’t hold back.

How do you keep a work-life balance?

I leverage technology so that I can work from anywhere. … That way having a full-time job doesn’t prevent me from traveling a lot or staying at home whenever I feel like it.

What one thing in your professional life would you like a do-over on?
