A little introspection...
To me, being successful means...
Giving back to the community. Sharing wisdom to be a positive influence.
My definition of success has changed over time.
I started adulthood financially driven. I had monetary success early on. As I grow older, money and things don't matter as much as experiencing life.
My greatest accomplishment to date and what I’ve learned from it
My children are my greatest accomplishment.
My biggest mistake or regret so far and what I’ve learned from it
Taking on too much responsibility at a young age. Not going to college right out of high school.
An unexpected event that significantly changed my life and how it impacted me
My father died when I was 24. He was my rock.
