So you want the whole story?
Well, you're in luck!
Grab a chair and a snack - outside of ice cream, my favorite is anything salty! - and settle in!
I was born in beautiful Salt Lake City, UT to the most amazing parents a girl could ask for! And I had a childhood that was blessed beyond measure, participating in dance, cheerleading, figure skating and playing whatever musical instruments my heart desired. My childhood had much opportunity to learn and grow from both experiences and examples.
I had not been raised in a family of entrepreneurs, in fact, it was quite the opposite. I had been raised by parents who legitimately thought that if you worked for a corporation, you’d be safe and secure and make enough money to get by all of your life. I was the type of kid that had a tendency to get bored easily, and this proved to be true when I found myself in mundane jobs and doing routine things. Many of my first jobs bored me after a couple of years, and in high school, it wasn’t that big of a deal for me to change jobs frequently. It’s kind of expected for a high school student. But as I got older, I just wasn’t finding happiness in any of the jobs I worked. I could not possibly dream of staying at any of these jobs for the next 30 years like my parents had done.
