What would you say is the most important part of your daily routine?
This is an easy question haha.
My morning routine and skincare
I get up very early, I exercise 5 or 6 times a week and meditate afterwards. Then I shower, prep my skin, listen to podcast and prepare myself a hearty protein filled vegan oatmeal.. perfection!
I loooove a good skincare routine and I never ever skip that time of the day no matter what!
What motivated you to become an entrepreneur?
I just wanted to do my own thing with my rules, my choices, my yes and no’s.. I always had a desire to create something, anything and share it with people around me. I love receiving feedbacks and focusing on upgrading my work, behavior and myself.
