These rewards reinforce my commitment to the values of Think+ and motivate me to continue working hard. 

What personal goals do you set for yourself, and how do they contribute to your overall sense of achievement?
I set personal goals that include continuous learning about clean energy technologies, improving my leadership skills to better support my team, and achieving a healthy work-life balance. These goals contribute to my overall sense of achievement by ensuring that I am constantly growing personally and professionally. 

What's one piece of advice you would give to someone considering becoming an Energy Advisor?
My advice would be to embrace hard and consistent work, as it truly pays off in this role. Set clear goals, both small and large, and focus on helping others. Make sure to achieve getting on the trips and connecting to the CEO and all of the Think+ team. No words can explain the value of it. 

How do you empower and support your downline to succeed as Energy Advisors?
I empower my downline advisors by providing them with ongoing training and mentorship, sharing best practices. By setting a positive example and demonstrating the rewards of hard work and dedication, I strive to inspire and support their growth and success.
