I think the best habit to get into (if you want to call it a habit) is having a good sense of humor. The universe is entropic by nature, and you can’t get bogged down trying to control everything. Life is way too short to take things too seriously, so learn to laugh at the struggles and take them in stride! Everything, especially chasing a passion, is much more enjoyable when you have a positive outlook. Read more>>

Adaptability. Growing up a first generation immigrant, leaving a life behind in Mexico, and learning a whole new language, all at such a young age, causes skills and habits to be developed. I do believe the elastic-like quality of adaptability has been the reason why I am a versatile woman and I have the ability to create opportunities for myself which leads to me living a life that I have always dreamed of and that does go hand in hand with my definition of “success”.

Patricia Robinson | Balloon Artist and Twister

I find that being organized and time management skills are key habits when you want to succeed. Many people love balloons, but do not understand the level of complexity that goes into balloon art and what they may deem as “just balloons”. Balloon art takes creativity, education, skill, time, and a lot of patience. Time management is important because you may or may not have the time you need to create and setup your balloon art. In the event you have less time, there’s some pre-planning you have to do prior to the event. If you have multiple events to setup, it is important to create a plan and stick to it so you do not fall short. Read more>>

Yonisha Elmadany | Founder & CEO

Creating habits has a major impact on anyone’s success. Challenging myself by learning new skills that requires a great deal of time and effort has rewarded me with amazing results and opportunities. If I don’t know how to do something, I take the time to learn. I’ve taken on client work that I didn’t know how and where to start, however, growth requires discomfort right? Did I do well on those client projects? Absolutely. I’ve taught myself to be a well-rounded creative. Read more>>
