Recently someone asked me to describe myself in less than 75 words,
and this is what I came up with about a minute and a half ...

I will make this world a better place with my
actions. Dance, math, & psychology will always be a
part of my life. I believe in living a life that
makes you happy while still making conscious, informed
decisions about your future. I love children,
waterfalls, and an open dance floor. I am always
learning, always looking for more and new information
& opportunities. I love to understand!

"Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around."

Your mind is your mental workshop.
You can build anything you want in it.

Visualize what you want in your mind.
See it. Feel it. Taste it. Believe in it.
Make your mental blueprint and then begin to build.

First, think about what you want out of life.
The beginning always takes place in your imagination.
Then organize your thoughts into definitive plans.
Next, it's time to transform your thoughts into reality
by taking some positive action.

You can live your dreams.

The reason so few people are successful is no one has yet found a way for someone to sit down and slide uphill.

-W. Clement Stone

Without ambition, one starts nothing. Without work, one finishes nothing. The prize will not be sent to you. You have to win it yourself!

Here's to starting and finishing - to getting everything done! I'm off to get a ton of stuff done today! :-)

"Everything is always impossible before it works. That’s what entrepreneurs are all about – doing what people have told them is impossible."
– R. Hunt Greene – Venture Capitalist

Here's to doing the impossible! Never tell me I can't do something that I want to do, because I will prove you wrong! :-)

Yes, I am young and female - but I can still ace AP tests without taking the class, graduate early and get accepted at top-rated colleges, start a cheerleading squad and dance troupe at a totally math and science school, move out on my own and support myself doing a job that I love, go to college full-time and run my store at the same time, and who knows what else is yet to come! Maybe multiple businesses, maybe traveling around the world, maybe retiring at 25! We'll just have to wait and see!

"Anything you really want, you can attain, if you really go after it."

But sometimes it's hard to figure out what I really want...
