What lesson took you the longest to learn?
I've gone from not caring about nice things and not wanting nice things, to having nice things and now just realizing that they don’t really matter. A nice handbag isn’t really going to change anything about your life. It's about spending the time to invest in your personal life and invest in yourself. Don’t say yes to things just because they’re glamorous. You can build your career by saying yes to a lot, you can definitely build a great network that way, and I did that for a very long time, but I'm at a place in my career where it’s very liberating to say no. Taking time to invest in my personal life is something that makes me much happier than showing up and trying to impress people that may seem important, but don’t make any impact on my life whatsoever.
