As we head into the holidays and prepare to celebrate the New Year, we are all wondering what 2017 will bring. Talk of vision boarding and wiping the slate clean abounds.
2016 has been a special year for me for many reasons, but especially because a hope of mine manifested itself. It was something I dared to envision for my life. It was very specific. I had the opportunity to meet someone that has opened the world up to me in a new way. I have had the privilege of working with her as well as her amazing team, and met several inspiring people she interviewed like spiritual guru Gabrielle Bernstein, activist David Usher, internet phenomenon Elizabeth Plank and design expert AJ Paron-Wildes.

I feel very privileged to be a part of her creative team, and I wanted to share her most recent interview we worked on because what is said is music to my ears. I hope it inspires you as you start dreaming of what 2017 will bring.
