You can find your life purpose at any age. I’ve found mine this year and I am so excited in fulfilling it for the rest of my life and creating lasting legacy for my kids.
*What do you most want to achieve in the next 12 months?
I want to make my company – ARTISURN – an established player in the memorial items market. I want people to proudly display Artisurn’s handcrafted urns and keepsakes in their homes and wear Artisurn’s handmade memorial jewelry to remember their loved ones.

Reflecting on what lies ahead and setting an intention for a day before getting out of bed and giving thanks before going to bed.

Be optimistic and open to possibilities. Work hard and never give up. Enjoy life!

I am proud of feeling excited about my life and being a role model for my kids.
