What do you wanted to be when you grew up?

I always wanted to be a Veterinary, as I love animals. Especially horses and cats. I found them loyal and therapeutic.

What sacrifices you have gone through to be where you are and following your dreams?

Being away of my family for sure, getting to celebrate success and achievements from a computer screen instead of in-person is not easy, also to be away for Christmas, for birthday’s, etc definitely not easy but I know that they are always with me and want to see me succeed.

Why not quoting if it’s so difficult?

Because I have worked so hard to be where I am, and I think keep fighting for what I want is the best decision I can take.

What’s your definition of an entrepreneur?

For me it’s not being afraid to fail and fight for everything you want. I think that every person that fights for his/her dreams should be called a warrior.

Do you think there is a success formula?

No, I think you need to follow your dreams, and keep fighting for what you want.

What advice can you give to other entrepreneur woman?

Never give up!

How do you see yourself in a few years?

With kids, working from home and with a few horses around my property. I love riding horses and that helps me to relax and do meditation.

Can you imagine a future where you don’t have to work again?

No, never. I like to be and feel active, I have so much energy (I don’t even know where comes from) that I don’t think I could we without working.
