Q4: What is the best thing about living your dreams?

A4: The best thing about living my dream, is obviously waking up every day and doing what I want to do.  I say that to my friends all the time that’s the best thing in life, waking up and knowing I am going to be doing something I want to do and not working a nine to five, working for someone else.

A9: The best thing about living my dreams is waking up and doing what I wanna do, I say to my friends all the time, that’s the best thing in life, waking up and knowing, I’m going to do something I actually love doing and not going to work a 9-5 that I don’t want to be doing, or going to work for someone I don’t want to work for, I work for myself.
