In six months I will turn thirty years old. Looking back at my twenties, I can honestly say I had really great times with awesome people and I had really hard times which taught me patience and understanding life better than before. I achieved a lot in my twenties — I served in the United States Marine Corps, I wrote a book, I modeled and acted for campaigns and TV commercials, I was the CEO of a business consulting firm for nearly 12 years, which I started at age 17, I was nominated for and received many awards and I traveled to and explored many places, events, and of course, coffee shops. The important things my twenties taught me was humbleness and how to be confident in myself. I was so determined to be successful during my teenage years and I can honestly say that I did achieve success.
What’s it like to be young and a CEO? Most CEOs start a business because they have an idea that would some day make them a ton of money or change the world. Did I want the same thing? Yes! I was young, ambitious, and I wanted to make a difference. Like most young people, I wanted to help others. My career molded me into the woman I am today. Now, it’s time for me to start a new journey, and I am so happy you’ve decided to join me.
