My team heard from some of the most successful entrepreneurs around the world and we learned SO much. I’m back for a few days and then I head to Cuba on Friday.

Happy Monday! I hope you had an awesome weekend. As some of you might know, Chinese New Year began on Saturday (I’m a quarter Chinese in case you were wondering!) and I had two awesome celebrations! One with fam and one with friends…So. Much. Food.

For this week’s Monday Musings, I’m shining all the attention on Valentine’s Day/ Galentine’s Day (Valentines with your gals!). Last year me and my friends went out for a Galentine’s dinner and it was SO much fun. It’s such a great excuse to get together to eat, drink and laugh and we’re definitely carrying on the tradition this year,
