Name: Shelly Neill
If you could make the sky any color you wanted for a day, what color would it be?
I like the sky every day no matter the color. It's always an amazing surprise full of vibrant texture and wonder so I wouldn't change a thing.
What accomplishment are you most proud of?
Getting my Master's degree. I went for it so that I could augment my position as an entrepreneur in the creative industry and that has come to pass.
What profession have you always admired?
I've always admired airplane pilots. It's such a challenging and disciplined profession with the great benefit of seeing the beauty of the world from a high vantage point. Very cool!
Have you ever bitten your toenails?
Where did you grow up and what do you love most about it?
I grew up in Jamaica, West Indies. The unrelenting spirit of hard work and pride in our heritage was instilled at a very early age in school and home. Being taught to love where you come from is something you never forget.
When was the last time you astonished yourself?
I'm a martial artist and recently advanced to learning a very physically challenging, new form. Being able to build up to 100 reps of these drills on each side was pretty shocking. I couldn't have done that a year ago.
What happens to you after you die?
I believe that we never really die.
Which member of your family would you like to be stranded on a desert island with?
When are you at your best?
When I'm in balance, fulfilling my purpose and trusting the Universe in all things.
What was the most recent compliment you’ve received and savored?
A client emailed me yesterday to say that the design project I completed for her contributed greatly to her winning a new client. My client's ultimate success is what I strive to achieve in my business practice.
Do you hold any convictions that you would be willing to die for?
I hold strong beliefs that we all should be able to live in creative freedom without judgment or discrimination from anyone as long as we do no harm to the well-being of ourselves or others.
If you could have anyone’s singing voice, who would it be?
I kinda like my singing voice. I have some decent pipes. :)
Seen anything weird lately?
Just yesterday I was in a pet store and there was an extremely large rabbit (about the size of a toddler) in a glass enclosure with one of the windows wide open. The rabbit was named after some character in The Princess Bride. The owner said that the 35 pound rabbit belonged to the store and was a harmless, loving creature who is free to roam the store at his leisure. He added that he was the smallest of his breed. I'm too afraid to Google it for further info.
In the rabbit cage at the pet store trippin' out.
Do you scrunch or fold your toilet paper?
What’s the one thing you admire most about yourself?
I always want to make sure I do the right thing. I was at a retreat recently and we spoke about that quality. It's called virtue. It's hard for me to say I'm virtuous, but I really have always lived my life with that goal in mind at all times.
If you could retire tomorrow, what would you do?
Move to an island with my partner and live the simple life.
