20 Questions With Pat

Feeling good enough to like yourself requires a whole lot of honesty, compassion, and guts. It takes a warrior-like attitude to protect yourself from your own self-criticizing. That’s why I think of all my Twinki-Winki customers as warriors. Because I see them doing the hard work of being kind to themselves.

And being that way, well, it kinda makes ya quirky. Because you just can’t help but stand out when you’re truly being yourself. Smile.


It’s the desire to belong to the world your way. We’ve all got it. But we don’t all have the guts to show it.

The Twinki-Winki Warrior Interviews continue. Today we’ve got 20 Questions with Pat.
