Q. What is your number one business goal to accomplish this year?
My main goal this year is to become sous chef with Cactus Club and travelling around the company working at different locations. In addition, my major goal for my underwear line, Puckering Peach, is to sell out of my first batch of underwear by the summer!
Q. What do you have going on that you’d like to share?
Currently I am working as a junior sous chef and I am absolutely thrilled with my progress. The pride that comes along with accelerating your skills and abilities in the field you love is incredible. At the same time, I have spent the last eight months designing and producing the cutest, most supportive underwear that I have ever worn.
Q. What is your favourite thing about what you do in your career and why?
My favourite thing about being a chef is the skill celling. A skill celling is a way to describe there being no limit for how good you can be at particular thing given enough practice or experience. I can cook an excellent steak, but I can always improve my methods, for there is no limit for how good you can cook a steak. Even though I excel in my field, I know that everything I do, I can do better or take to the next level.
Q. Do you have a mantra or phrase you live by? What is it?
“I could not imagine what it would be like to not believe I can do anything I want to” – Liam Chernen (2016). This is something I came up with myself when I just graduated high school. I simply cannot imagine what it would be like if I couldn’t do anything that I wanted. During this time, figuring out our directions in life can be daunting. I decided that the best way for me to succeed was to not put any limits on what I believed I could do or work towards. This quote demonstrates that I know that I am good enough and that nothing could make me feel insignificant or diminish me from my dreams and goals.
Q. What keeps you motivated on a daily basis?
My motivation stems from the fact that I know what I want is out there. I see it on social media, in photos, and in my day to day life. When it comes to my ideal place to live, where I want to travel, my ideal partner, my hobbies and interests, even materialistic things that I like. I surround myself with what I want and the fact that I know I can have what I want if I work for it. It becomes real when you are who you want to be.
