Consistency has been key. It’s easy to give up quickly after not seeing immediate results, but being persistent has helped me harness growth. As a recovering perfectionist, I try to practice the “done is better than perfect” motto.

Passion is probably the most important factor. Quality, engagement, and professionalism are also big words that can be applied – and they are very important to us and our business, but without passion, everything else becomes more difficult.
