Kori defines success as a constant journey marked by making smart choices. “The more I get to decide and shape how I can live the life I want, the more successful I am,” she says. “I choose to be an entrepreneur every day, which allows me to live out my life's purpose in a meaningful and impactful way. Since success is a journey, I know that I'm always one decision away from becoming more successful based on the choices I make.”
