Tell us about your background: I'm a serial entrepreneur with a deep love for community building based on the givefirst ethos. I have a deep appreciation for entrepreneurs and the journey we all experience. I am passionate about mental health in the entrepreneurial realm as I believe that the happiest healthiest entrepreneurs are the most focused, productive and ultimately the most profitable.

We love what we do. It has been a winning approach.

Having blogged weekly for over two years, I'm not a stranger to trying to balance writing content that is optimized for search engines while also trying to make an 'human' post that is designed for you, the reader.
