We had the good fortune of connecting with Johnnie Cotton and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Johnnie, how has your perspective on work-life balance evolved over time?
Over time it has gotten a little better. consistency, drive, and discipline is key For this work life balance. Make sure to schedule things out more snd just be as organized as you can.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I guess i would say acceptance for yourself. Its hard living in a world where things are a little better when you are pretty or whatever. You are perfect the way you are.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I would say take a drive first just to catch the scenery, then we go to doughnut hero because there food is pretty good. I haven’t explored enough here in Georgia yet but for the most part i just like to vibe out watch movies.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Shout to the ones that are trying to make they light shine. The ones who kept going when no one believed in them.
