My favorite part of my success is that I get to do what I love every day. It’s such a blessing to do that. Not everyone can say that. And I really appreciate the opportunities I have from that. I get to travel, I get to see all these beautiful places and eat at wonderful restaurants and sample the best of life. The most important thing though is that I get to do what I absolutely love on a regular basis. That’s the ultimate high. I love it.

The drawback: You lose some of your privacy. You lose the anonymity that allows you to move freely in the world. But ultimately, the good of my life far outweighs the bad. I feel like I should never complain. I live a good life and I feel very fortunate.
