I’ve always wanted to start my own company and be an entrepreneur but naturally have been a little gun shy with taking financial risks. In the spring of 2020, I was studying abroad in Barcelona having the time of my life. Admittedly, I was nervous and hesitant at first, but the experience was so amazing that I started to think of life with a “regret minimization” mentality. While starting a company is a big risk, I knew I would forever regret not starting one. With the help of my Dad’s punny humor and my sister’s amazing artwork, I’ve launched XL-Ant Life, promoting a way of life that encourages living life to its fullest, being present in the moment, and outsizing the fun.
