I began working at the age of 15, & I haven't looked back since. My first three jobs were for local businesses that had limited hours (to comply with the work permit laws). Coincidentally, all of those jobs were also mainly self-monitored. Those positions taught me the foundations of my work ethic, & they helped me quickly learn the do's & don't's of managing a healthy work-life balance.
On top of running a full-scale solopreneurship, I recently graduated from University of Riverside, California with my Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (with an emphasis in Management & coursework in Human Resources). Upon graduation, I immediately secured a full-time position; within 14 months, my work ethic was recognized & I received a promotion. Loving where you work is one major step in having a healthy work-life balance, lowering stress, & living a happier life. I'm proud to say that I absolutely love what I do as an employee & as my own boss!
Although I'm a pretty open book, I find it extremely awkward to write about myself. Here goes nothing! Let's start with the basics: I'm a SoCal native, first-generation Vietnamese-American, & the oldest out of two children; my favorite color is red, my favorite number is five, & my favorite thing to eat (aside from Vietnamese food) is Mexican food; I'm a Capricorn, my brother & I were born in the same year (but we are not twins!!), & I have a Boston Pug (Boston Terrier + Pug) named Bentley King.
Although I am not an athletic person by any means, my mom started a family tradition when I was about 10 to go skiing/snowboarding every winter. It has been a yearly tradition to visit Mammoth at least once during snow season, & although I skied when I was younger, I switched to snowboarding at the age of 14. I'm ecstatic to report that I have never broken any bones or injured myself either—just one “weakened” knee.
