On Tuesday, July 14th, I turn 38! I love celebrating my birthday, which I’m extending to a week-long celebration. 🎉

One of the greatest gifts I can give myself is the gift of self-reflection and personal growth.

So today, I’m excited to share eight business and life lessons, which resonate the most with me right now.

It made me think about how I want to merge life, art, and business into one — and make it a daily practice of creative intention.
