- In no more than three sentences, please explain what you do
I am a keynote speaker, multi-media personality, Huffington Post contributor, and brand spokesperson who uses the spoken and written word to empower individuals globally to achieve their fullest potential.
- Who inspires you?
Jessica Alba inspires me by virtue of her impressive transformation from a globally recognized actress to a globally recognized businesswoman who conceptualized the mission, vision, strategic imperatives of The Honest Company, and leads the creative brand strategy of her company’s product lines. With a valuation of over $1B, The Honest Company has truly arrived, but Jessica is constantly vying to diversify its repertoire by introducing newer threads such as Honest Beauty and Honest Hair product lines. In addition, I greatly admire that she balances an incredibly fulfilling professional life with a grounding family life consisting of her incredible husband and two daughters. This duality of professional and personal fulfillment is my deep desire!
- What is the biggest change you want to see in the world?
My greatest dream is to live in a world of incredibly self-empowered, intellectually, and emotionally fulfilled people who love life and proclaim their happiness each day. I truly believe that positivity is a choice, and honestly, that life is much more valuable when lived with meaning, significance, gratitude, and happiness.
- What would you like to be remembered for?
This is a question that has provoked deep thought! I want to be remembered as having empowered millions of people globally to achieve their fullest potential via the media platform, but inherently, as someone who created her own destiny, as someone who did not come from an insider background, as someone who was very much an outsider, but who, through sheer willpower, hard work, soaring levels of self-confidence, unyielding drive, unrelenting ambition, and resolute grit, created her own legacy to inspire generations.
- What is the most interesting new idea you’ve come across in the past year?
The intersection of a tremendously fulfilling professional life which aligns with serving one’s highest purpose, along with a wide assortment of hobbies, passions, and interests, adds great dimension to one’s life. I am an ardent advocate of diversifying one’s life and constantly investing in novel experiences to add flavors to life, which ultimately, succeed in broadening one’s visions, viewpoints, and perspectives in an unforeseen way.
