COO, Shayla Copas Lifestyle
Who or what has been a source of inspiration for you?
My wife is my daily inspiration. I have not ever known anyone in my life with so much passion for what they do. I think that is what made us the perfect fit for each other. I was always intrigued by her outlook on things and impressed by her drive to reach goals. Shayla has been diligent during her career and it is paying off. I am also inspired each and every day by God’s grace and His love.

During which part of the day are you most productive?
Morning is definitely when I shine because I am refreshed and thinking ahead.
