I live by the philosophy that if I don’t take care of myself, I can’t take care of anyone or anything else.
“If you can’t control it, don’t worry about it.” – wise words of my husband
I would have to say my current hobby is my two-year old. I mean, is there time for anything else? (Is that sad?!) But I try to incorporate my passions into my parenting. We do lots of arts and crafts, cooking, and playing / training our two rambunctious dogs.
I support the Sjogren’s Syndrome Foundation, and two refugee charities in Israel to provide free health care and technical skills to women who have fled Eritrea (Physicians for Human Rights and the Eritrean Women’s Center).
Goals for Curated Nest brand – achieve enough success that we could garner outside investment
Personal goals – feel strong enough and healthy enough that I can get pregnant again
Something terrible happening to my child (I know it’s trite, but it is truly my biggest fear).
PS I was going to say Trump becoming President, but…too late…
-Marketing and generally getting the word out – as a new business, this is very challenging! -Partnership with a complementary brand. -Could use help in achieving outside investment.
I would tell 20-year-old Lina to meditate! Meditation has become a big part of my life in managing stress and a chronic illness, and I wish I had learned it earlier. But, I had a blast in my 20s so I am not complaining one bit!
Being a part of a community of diverse and vibrant moms is like a dream. I am a curious person and love hearing other people’s stories. Love the idea of being a part of community of engaged women as a chance to network, build business collaborations/ opportunities, and make friends with people I would not have met otherwise. I also really enjoy a good time (wine, anyone?).
