We had the good fortune of connecting with Tiffany Wooden and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Tiffany, do you have some perspective or insight you can share with us on the question of when someone should give up versus when they should keep going?
I think that the defining moment of knowing when to keep going or give up, is when you’re literally at the biggest crossroads in your life. And you’re suddenly asking yourself, why did I start fighting in the first place? How much of my heart am I willing to sacrifice?
And I think that if you remember why you started the dream, and looking how far you’ve come, you don’t really have to sacrifice hour heart.
Also, ask yourself “when is it not worth it anymore, when is it no longer fun?”

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
My best friend was in town for a week, I would of course have to show her some of the best places that I absolutely love myself. Where would we eat?
To start, these are the places I would take them out to eat.
An absolute place I love, not just the food, it’s the atmosphere, the vibes, where everyone is so welcoming and fun, at Big Boys in Los Angeles. I believe it is actually the only one left, but it is places like that, that are just fantastic, the experience you can’t get anywhere else.
If You’re asking for a little more upscale, I’d highly take them to Nobu in Malibu, it’s such a fantastic place in Paradise.
If they wanted a one of a kind dessert that they’ve never had. I’d definitely take them on a quick trip to Northern California up to Fenton’s Ice Cream, because that place is all-around amazing, especially the vibe.

You’re asking where I would take them to visit, honestly, a week seems so little time though. I mean we can’t forget some of the most famous hot spots that we are known for. I would definitely love to show them a great time along the Santa Monica Pier, or an amazing walk up and down Sunset Boulevard. I would never forget to take my best friend to experience true California Art and culture that we are known for. Perhaps California’s true nature at it’s finest inside the breathtaking Yosemite Park, it’s just pure serenity and peace to just truly find your self and escape life for a while. I think Yosemite just has this thing that brings you back to life.

If you’re looking for places to just hang out and relax, I definitely recommend Santa Monica, CA, the vibe and energy there are just so vibrant and relaxing, Might I also suggest Glendale, CA, known for it’s shopping and vibe. You could also take your best friend over to Old Town Pasadena, there’s so much history behind that town. The Madonna Inn, That’s history, and so beautiful, it’s a place like no other, and if you stay in a room, each room is a different theme.
California, is known for it’s fairs, so I would definitely take my best friend to one of California’s amazing fairs.

one of the most interesting and exciting people to check out would definitely have to be Selena Gomez. She is so Strong, Kind, and Caring. She is always doing so much to help so many others. I think she is absolutely perfect to check out, and her singing and music, are just pure genius and beyond incredible and beautiful.

The perfect places, things to check out? There’s so many, ha, but let’s do it.
I have always found the Hollywood Walk of Fame a bit fascinating, and fun. Let’s not forget Magic Mountain, it is definitely an exciting place to go, it’s so fun and lively, the perfect place to go and have fun. I have always had a fascination with Museums, so you could go on over and check out Metropolitan Museum of Arts in Los Angeles, it just truly shows you so much about art and history.
So, whether you live in California or just visiting, these are some great places for anyone to go.

Some of my absolute favorite places that I would show my best friend, especially if they’ve never been, Is Santa Monica.
I absolutely love visiting Rodeo Drive or going to the Museum. One of my absolute favorite places, definitely Disneyland in Anaheim, CA.
California really is the perfect place to show your best friend around and a good time!
