Highlight so far this year and what you’re looking forward to this next year
I was so lucky to be able to move down to Cabo for two months earlier this year. Getting to swim in the ocean and drink margaritas everyday was a dream come true. And it gave me a great perspective on who I am and what I want to go after in life. For this next year I'm looking forward to focusing on my careering real estate!
