Two hashtags that best describe you
#girlDad #radicallyTransparent

What do you consider your greatest achievement?
Marrying my wife – outkicked coverage on that one.

What is your idea of perfect happiness?
Finding purpose & achievement daily. It can be from time spent with my kids influencing their development into a great, loving human being or in the work and milestones we achieve at ShoppingGives as our mission is Impact.

What are your top tips for balancing work and life?
Reflect, Prioritize, and Discuss. Work/Life balance becomes stressful when you feel you aren’t delivering in one or both parts. I’ve found by practicing radical transparency with your partners (work & life) you are rarely alone in your thoughts and you’re typically a lot harder on yourself than those around you. Plus – people are usually willing to help!

What is something new that you learned about running a business this year?
Balance—Things are never as bad as they seem; but they also aren’t as good.

What is your motto?
I don’t know thats its a motto – but I’d say my M.O. is ‘positive intent’ and ‘radical transparency’.
