What is the biggest risk you've ever taken?
Fostering Wesley, our now 18 year old Bahamian son and launching a direct sales business. Two very different very emotional risks but where everything is on the line.
What's one piece of advice you wish you could give your 23-year-old self?
Chill, it really does not matter what anyone else thinks, have confidence in yourself.
And your favorite item in your closet?
My Margaux flats [which] are about to travel with me from the mid west to manhattan as I take my business out on the road and my English Rose [eau de parfum] fragrance, to remind me of warm summer days in my parents Oxfordshire garden.
