5. What’s the most useful advice you’ve ever given somebody?
Follow your dreams! – I knew someone who had a job and a steady income. To give her a taste of working for a client, I even outsourced work to her but I could see a burning sensation to do something bigger.
I told her to take the plunge and she has never looked back since.
6. How has the pandemic changed your life and/or career?
At the onset of the pandemic, we lost 4 big projects in a span of 3 weeks and it was very frightening. Instead of laying off, I knew it was time to buckle up and work harder.
2 months later, we were back in business – I plan to grow the company despite the pandemic and do better than before!
7. If we gave you $10 million to invest in one thing right now, where would you put it?

Tesla and the overall economy.
