Others' experience with my cooking is what made me fall in love with food.

A sense of normalcy comes from others sharing their story.

Helping others and improving their lives is my drive.

Your brain is what will attract the right people.

Your fear is what stands in the way of your success.

I figured out I could teach people to make delicious food that was also good for them.

You won't be on your deathbed wishing for more followers.

Your body and looks are fleeting.
