If you could open a second business, what would it be?

I’d really like to continue under the KIPOS brand because all of my personal interests + values intersect with its philosophy! It would be a blessing to achieve a location on a very busy strip with greater square footage, and an extension of assets that emphasize our Wellness Department rather than product! For example, a Studio – including services such as Acupuncture, RMT, Yoga, and Naturopathy. I would host this under a separate name; however, it would be within the KIPOS brand and facility. If I could also add one more thing, a KIPOS Terra-Cotta Go-Go Cart where we would perform Street Food Dishes! I love Street Food, and its fast-paced hustle!

 

If you could turn back time and only say one thing to your younger self, what would you say?

It’s okay to be different. Be confident in your identity and establish a core set of values, and eliminate anything that doesn’t serve or support its purpose. There is a greater beauty and liberation in creating your own reality than someone dictating it for you.
