What are your guiding principles? We live in a culture that celebrates outward achievements with little regard for internal prosperity. The totality of success is not in the car we drive, the money we make or having the right address; the totality of success is what lies on the inside. To me, success is defined as wholeness. Therefore, my guiding principle is the ability to live from the inside out.
How do you volunteer your time in the community? I founded She Became, which is a community geared towards helping women evolve from who they are into the woman they’ve always wanted to be.
Who has helped you achieve success in your life and career? My dad and my mom have helped me achieve success in life and in career. They are my biggest cheerleaders and supporters in everything I do. My dad and my mom have truly made me believe I can fly!
What goal would you like to accomplish before turning 40? Before turning 40, I’d like to have three-four real estate brokerages opened in different cities to continue dominating the real estate industry and spreading God’s glory wherever I go.
