What is something - big or small - that you are proud of? - I am proud of having the courage to quit a job in finance five years ago to move to another country and start my own business.

I stand for…making one’s dreams come true. A lot of people tell me that I’m “lucky” to do what I do, but luck had nothing to do with it. I have worked very hard to build my blog and business into what they are today, and I always encourage others to take steps—however small—to achieve their goals as well. It may seem overwhelming at first, but it pays off over time!
