Without further ado, here they are (in no particular order). Enjoy!
I'm the mom to the cutest baby boy in the world.
My real name is Aisha. Peach is a pet name given to me by my husband.
I'm first generation Canadian. Both of my parents were born and raised on tropical islands (Philippines and Jamaica). They met in Vancouver when they were teenagers, so I have a HUGE multiracial family to show for it.
I’m the oldest of 3 sibling and between us we have a 7-10 year age gap. My little sister sometimes calls me mom by accident.
I LOVE shops coffee. They scream productivity, creativity, and fresh starts. When that java hits my system it give me a certain sense of clarity.
I take a notepad and pen everywhere I go. In the car, by my nightstand, and at my desk. You never know when a great idea is going to strike. I’ve filled countless notebooks with ideas, business models, marketing plans, and to-do lists to last me an entire lifetime. I have many goals I would like to accomplish this years.
I have a marketing degree, which I never used until now.
I'm extremely driven. I've never been "naturally smart", but I've always worked my ass off.
I believe in helping others. In my opinion, helping others brings a life that is not only happy but also healthy, more productive, and meaningful.
The reason I started this blog was to help others.
I feel happiest when I’m with my family. The world just seems so complete when its just me, my husband, my one year old, and my pup.
I went to school to become a nurse, and after two years I decided it wasn’t for me.
If I could get rid of just one thing – it would be the need for sleep. I’m always wishing for more hours in the day.
I played high level soccer for 15 years. I believe soccer teaches many life lessons.
Becoming a mom has made me a casual dressing kind of gal. You know how most women have a walk-in closet full of clothes. Well, mine’s a tiny closet that’s half full. Most of it is filled with tights, baggy sweaters and workout clothes... oh yea and loose cardigans. My fave.
My absolute favorite TV show is The Office (American), I watch it on repeat. I've re-watched it 15 times.
I love boxing. I’m a physical person and boxing is the perfect way to exercise while relieving stress. It seems to take away any and all problems. It helps you focus on what’s in front of you.
Sometimes I wish I had never went to college. Part of of me thinks it was a big waste of money, but another part is grateful for the things I have learned.
I love to cook. I'm self taught BTW!
I have the craziest mf dog in the world. He’s a Rottweiler-Pitt bull mix named Romeo. The guy tears up my house and eats everything in sight. It surprises me how much I love him.
I have THE most amazing mom on the earth. She has been my biggest fan since day one. The woman is so kind and down to earth, her mantra has always been "be humble".
I’ve known my husband since I was thirteen. He’s my rock, the family we’ve built together has been what motivates me everyday.
I LOVE music! I grew up with 80-90’s RnB, hip hop, and reggae. I still keep those genres strong in my playlist repertoire, but I’ve come to love dancehall, reggaetón, pop, etc.
I am and have always been independent. I moved out when I was 18 and dob't regret it.
I’m amazing at managing a schedule. For two years I worked "part-time" as a server, went to school full-time, worked for a local magazine as an intern, and played competitive soccer.
I have a terrible memory. Great with faces, terrible with names.
I enjoy getting tattooed. I have five and counting.
Including English, I speak three languages conversationally. As a proud Canadian-Filipina, I find that a lot of millennial Filipinos have lost the language. Luckily my mom and aunts have always spoken Tagalog to us. Besides Tagalog, I speak Spanish with my husband. His family is from the La Palma, Spain, so I constantly keep my Spanish up with him.
I think ‘Being Yourself’ is one of the biggest keys to business and life.
I’m actually surprised that it was that easy to come up with these 30 things.
