What is the single best piece of advice you’d give to everyone?

If you’re going to laugh about something in 10 years time, don’t wait.

When did you make the biggest difference?

I like to hope that I have made a big differece in someone’s life multiple times both in my work as a nurse and now as a healer, and in my work as a mum.

Who had the most influence on your life?

For good or for bad, again there have have numerous people who have helped to make me the woman I am today.

What was your greatest moment?

I don’t know that I have ever had a greatest moment, but I have had thousands of little moments.

What do you want to be when you grow up?

When I was a child, I wanted to be a nurse when I grew up. Now that I am a grown up, and am no longer a nurse I am still trying to figure that question out.

What did you admire most about your mother/father/parents?

I didn’t

What advice would you give to your teenage self?

Don’t take life personally.

Share something you learned at your day job that applies to life in general.

My day job is to be a mother. What have I learned? Don’t sweat the small stuff.

How old would you be if you didn't know how old you are?

As old as I am.

What is the one thing you'd most like to change about the world?

The holidays are almost here and we’re ready with some super cool quests. We’ve got a niche focus for everyone on Squidoo.

These requests require lensmasters to use one of our three new format lens styles. Product Review, Recipe and How-To.

Join our self-guided RocketSquid University to learn how to use the new formats today and be eligible to participate in the quests. You can apply here.

So are you ready for the Holiday Quests?
