Tell us about your journey? I started blogging about six years ago in response to family and friends saying that they wish they could take me home with them. I started blogging full-time about two years ago. Deciding to leave my job and blog full-time has been the best decision I’ve ever made. I have seen my income triple in the last two years with no stopping.

What what's your favorite part of your day? Stepping into my office at 8 a.m.

When do you feel most successful? I feel most successful when I complete all my daily tasks.

What do you do to recharge when you’re feeling drained? Edit photos. Editing photos is very relaxing for me.

What do you know today that you wish you would have known when you first got started as an entrepreneur? Creating more time for myself. When you take care of yourself everything else falls into place.

How do you optimize your day? I create a list of things to do, and I tackle them in order of importance.

Who is the person/people who allowed you to imagine more?  My husband and my sisters.

What does imagining more mean to you and your story?   Imagining more means not seeing yourself as the average. Once I started blogging I envisioned myself as being one of the top bloggers in the world. My journey is striving for the best and not settling for anything else.

If you could do more of one thing every day what would it be?  Engage more with my followers. My blog is nothing without them.
