For a time, I was Deepak Chopra’s executive assistant. Working for the mind-body-health luminary, I learned that, by practicing daily gratitude, anyone can choose happiness.
This practice informs how I think about my work. The highlights of my career have been acts of community service small and large, things like putting together care packages for our nation’s service men and women. Helping these same men and women who serve the country is among my highest callings.
And my primary motivation for building a thriving business with Booz Allen’s Navy Marine Corps clients? To support the dreams and aspirations of her clients, teams and their families—that’s gratitude for my community, gratitude for our nation’s protectors, and gratitude for the team that follows my lead.
You can choose happiness. I firmly believe that.
