She Truly 'Started From Bottom'

Don't Question Her Love for Nutella 🍫🌰🍞

There are two types of people in the world: Those who have an undying love for Nutella, and those who are unable to truly experience joy.

Luckily Wendy belongs to the former group. You can catch her on Instagram @wendylclark, professing strong statements about the nutty treat, globe hopping, and giving back.

She Doesn't Believe in Work-Life Balance

Did we already mention Wendy is a hard worker? Well we’re saying it again. She’s been working since she was 16 years old (she was a shift manager at McDonald’s). Today, she still dives head-first into work, which can make living life outside of work a bit difficult.

Her advice? Strive for work-life integration to be a better you.
