Even though I’m in the business of love, I think it’s important to dress like a powerhouse. I love my business, and I want to represent it well — I want to be taken seriously in my workplace, but I also want to show my personality because god knows I have a lot of it!

My business is about two people finding love with each other, but I’m just as passionate about finding love within yourself. I know, cheese alert. But it’s true.
