What is one thing you would tell a younger version of yourself?
“No matter how busy you get, always make time for the things that nourish your soul. Your best business ideas will come spontaneously when you are doing something that you love. When your creative self is starved for stimulation, the other parts of your life will suffer for it. I’ve had countless eureka moments while sailing a boat or flying a plane, and almost none sitting at a desk.”
