Q&A a Day: If you were going to start your own company, what would it be? At 10yo I wanted to be a teacher, at 20yo a psychiatrist, computer scientist, author, photographer, and world traveler, and at 30yo I want to dive and travel and be healthy and happy and share these goals with others. I would start a company that motivates people to make a positive difference in their life — in their home, brain, and body. Maybe one day I’ll own a dive shop and fitness center next to my husband’s garage.
