BEST ADVICE FOR OTHERS: Do what you say you are going to do. Your word is everything.
WHAT I’VE LEARNED: Block your calendar for those things in your life that are important and hold that time as sacred.
WHAT I WAS LIKE IN HIGH SCHOOL: I would say a bit lost and insecure. I really did not have an understanding of who or what I wanted to be in life.
