I love quotes! In tough times a good quote brings me hope and strength – feeding my resilience. In good times, a good quote can help me to express my joy and gratitude. One of my favorite quotes is from Nelson Mandela – “I never lose, I either win or I learn.” This one is particularly meaningful for me at all times in my life because I believe that no experience in life is wasted, even the tough stuff.

My love language is 100% words of affirmation. I’ve been known to write quotes on sticky notes all over my mirror and desk. The process of journaling and repeating mantras is really important to center myself daily. Over the pandemic, I came to resonate with a lyric from Hamilton the Musical. As Aaron Burr awaits his time to shine against Hamilton, he says “I am the one thing in life I can control. I am imitable. I am an original.” Read more>>

Before I started Charcuterie.la, I was trying to find something that I would be interested in, which would bring me joy together with a good income. When I moved to Los Angeles, I understood fast enough that there is no other place like LA – and that’s what makes it good and bad at the same time. The market is highly saturated with everything – from restaurants to clothes, movies, bars, and services. The thought that I must invent something to succeed was powerful. Read more>>

Many quotes and affirmations have served me over the past few years especially, but one that sticks out came from Ed Mylett: “making and keeping commitments to ourselves is how we build self-confidence.” Self-confidence is something I’ve struggled with for my entire life. Growing up, I often felt afraid, timid and unworthy, with an underlying melancholy that I never quite understood. So learning that confidence is a SKILL that can be developed through practice was life-changing. Here’s my key insight on building self-confidence: Read more>>

My favorite quote is by Martha Graham on the life-force of creativity. “There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all of time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is nor how valuable nor how it compares with other expressions. Read more>>

I actually have a favorite bible verse. It comes from Proverbs 3:15. “She is more precious than jewels, and nothing you desire can compare with her.” I love this bible verse so much I actually implemented it and made it a part of my brand. I made it a staple on some of my marketing because I want to shed light to those who are insecure about how they look or who they are. In God’s eyes we are all precious, far more precious than jewels. Read more>>

“If ye have the faith like the faith like the grain of a mustard seed, nothing shall be impossible to you.” It’s a quote which is faith based, but also which can emphasize the importance of perseverance. It’s a quote which reminds me that even taking small steps are better than no steps at all, since eventually they have a cumulative effect. When I think about the more difficult moments of my life, every time I thought I “couldn’t” I was reminded I COULD; most times I was redirected to something even better. Read more>>
