Along with SaveOurChildren Org to gather 15.4k people to bring the horrific acts of child abduction to light, plus more.
I’m sure your success has not come easily. What challenges have you had to overcome along the way?
A lot of the challenges I faced were internal. I had to overcome a lot of the battles with myself before I could grow my business. All my previous struggle came to my face and for me to truly become who I needed to be I had to face my demons and find a resolution for them. One of the many struggles I had was comparing myself to those on social media and it took away a lot of the joy of my own journey. I had a lot of creative writer’s block and that made me not know how to proceed and the feeling of being stagnant is one of the worst feelings for me.
Let’s talk about the work you do. What do you specialize in and why should someone work with you over the competition?
We have been creating a community of individuals that want to truly like they are around like-minded health individuals. Avanti last year partnered up with Twins Cities Therapy – Counseling Associates to help those going through mental struggles special discounts for Therapists and Counselors to provide the help they need. Along with SaveOurChildren Org to gather 15.4k people to bring the horrific acts of child abduction to light, plus more. We want to continue this upcoming year by a lot of youth and adolescent focused campaigns play a critically important role in helping fight climate change. We’re proud to fund next-generation carbon removal. We are deeply invested in creating sustainable change and not just talking about it. Being part of the community I have personal interest to see the community succeed in anything it does. In Avanti we have people from different backgrounds and interests so it covers a wide scope of issues that can be resolved when it pertains to adolescents and the community
