The internet is an incredible thing especially with the advent of social media. A little over a year ago I stumbled across and immediately started following @garyvee. Beyond his business acumen meteoric accomplishments and staying power he speaks my brand of hustle - "success" is vapid without kindness. Occasionally, I would affirm or applaud how one of his posts resonated with me in the comments. Gary noticed me and sent me some encouragement as he is known to do for so many and eventually I was contacted by someone on his team as an influencer to partner in ways that made sense. @empathywines is one of his latest ventures but it also encapsulates what I've observed as his mission. I wanted to share so you guys know that moving through the world with love, authenticity, hustle and the passionate pursuit of your "BRAND" of happiness can put you in places and with people that you greatly admire who, in turn, also notice and cheer as you rise. Thank you Gary, as I said today, I am grateful for your time and advise. #MondayMotivation #GoBeGreat #VaynerMedia

"I am going to be entering the dating world after nearly a decade."
Further, she explained,
"I’m in the process of getting a divorce, sadly. It’s weird because literally, three weeks after filing, I got this job where I’m playing a newly divorced woman who’s co-parenting with her ex that she still loves, but they’ve somehow realized that they’re not meant to partner together anymore. It was kind of this weird, amazing moment the universe was like, here’s art imitating life and we’re going to talk about this and you’re going to explore it in a really humorous way."
She is most probably single at the moment, still, she stated that she's very much ready for a new love life.
