Tam: Ok let’s talk about beauty and hair. When did you start wearing your locs? What was behind the decision to loc your hair?
AS: I began to loc my hair in 2007. I'd been wearing my hair natural since 2000 and grew tired of the maintenance associated with twists and twist-outs. So, I decided to loc for ease of maintenance, and because they’re beautiful.

1. Launching my financial coaching business has been both challenging and rewarding. It gives me joy to see that I can use my experience, expertise and talents to build something from scratch
2. Meditation training. I’m learning how to meditate, the right way. I’ve never understood meditation, but I’m now learning the science behind it - the benefits, how to train my mind and body to relax, how to transcend stress, etc. It’s very fascinating.
3. Being close to paying off my mortgage. Freeedommm!
