Foster City, California
I was born in Latvia but moved to the states when I was young with my family to have a better life. I've been a business owner for over 23 years and stress has taken it's toll. I am working out and eating healthier to lose a few pounds (already lost 15lbs!), and reduce stress. My wife and I have been brining our dog to work and she helps lighten the mood and most customers like it.
