Don’t work for free. Your services are worth a lot more.

How do you achieve work/life balance?

What business leader do you admire the most and why?

Elon Musk – I love his vision and passion – he’s unstoppable. Mary Barra, she’s tough as nails. Sarah Blakely, she created one product and turned it into a billion dollar industry. Jessica Alba, I love the Honest Co and didn’t believe the direct to consumer model would work with soap – she proved me wrong. Impressive. Kelly Mooney, she works hard, is a great mom and has a good sense of humor.

Where is your favorite place to have a meeting outside of the office?

I love my lunch spots – The Whitney House, Sweet Carrot – restaurants that are a little unique and healthy and fun.

Why do you think Columbus is a great place to do business?

I think Columbus is the most underrated city in the US – amazing place to raise a family, good food, good sports and small enough to have a business community. Now if we can get the airport to have more direct flights… Life would be perfect.
