What drives you to keep going on your mission? 

I think at times we think our mission in life is changing and really it's just how we express that mission that changes. It might be a different business, new project or art work however when we truly find our life's work it's hard to escape it and that in and of it's self is what drives you. Finding new ways to solve problems or derivatives of a root problem keeps the journey fun and exciting.

What advise would you give your 18 year old self?

The advice that I would give to my 18 year old self is that you don't have to have it all figured out. It's been my experience that I tend to figure things out or attract solutions when I'm not trying to. Part of the lesson in life that I think we are hear to learn is to understand that we actually have very little control over what happens.

Two women who inspire you?

My children inspire me everyday.

Oprah also inspires me mainly for the courage to walk in her purpose despite what box others have put them in. Stepping into that power (at what ever stage in life) can be scary. It's an act of bravery.
