What motivates you and gets you up in the morning?
What gets me up in the morning is the ability to communicate with people that create an impact during conversations, innovative projects, or other synergies. It’s also vital for me to expand and challenge my mind, learn something I haven’t seen or heard before and discover new places and cultures. Any new chance to explore is eye-opening.
Which part of your work is the most important to you?
The most important part would be to give someone your exclusive attention and be willing to donate your time to build trust. The priority should be to offer and help people build their own wellness lifestyle and improve their quality of life.
You can either create a memorable experience that will remind each individual to take some time for self-care and relaxation, or work closely and take time to attain awakening by taking advantage of breathing techniques, movement and meditation.
What piece of advice would you give to someone who is willing to try something similar to what you are doing?
Connect with like-minded people and clarify what you want to achieve. Make a list of "your people’’ that you know you can trust and build a community in order to motivate and inspire each other.
Tell us about your next project
I am planning to be part of a team that designs travel experiences for people seeking a holistic wellbeing escape, and grow the start-up project I participate in.
Also, my intention is to keep growing our female empowerment team in Local Shala by Ellie Stone. This place feels like home, as Ellie is an amazing yoga teacher and inspiration!
