So, I turned to crowdfunding... nonetheless, my campaign failed! My dream of launching a brand was put on the shelf.

After three years, I created Fundlify. A crowdfunding solution made for creators, startups, and brands looking for an agile way to fund their creations independently.
4. WHAT IS YOUR MORNING ROUTINE & RITUAL? I drink coffee, observe my surroundings and try to be present. I recap my daily tasks, prioritize and just get to work.
5. WHAT MANTRA,QUOTE,LINE OR PHRASE DO YOU SAY OFTEN TO INSPIRE AND MOTIVATE YOURSELF? Be present, focus on actions, And don't let your thoughts control your day. Move forward and progress every day. Look at the top of the mountain once, But focus on where you stand every step of the way.
