How do you define success?  Success has to be holistic and integrated. It cannot simply be attached to one element of life. To me success is when I am living out my values and moral compass; have healthy relationships, leave the world a better place than when I entered it; and have excelled in my full potential.

Who is your role model and why?  Bono. He is incredibly balanced, passionate and has used his position and status at great lengths to make a difference and help others.
