SMILES and SUSHI make everyday better

Heroes are the ones who have courage to be different, to change status quo, stand for something and start a movement that uplifts and inspires others.

Heroes are not born. Heroism is not inherited or something you can purchase. SHEroes and heroes evolve from struggles, and trials, and awareness. 

Loubna Zarrou was shy, introverted, and bullied as a child. She made a choice to rise above limiting circumstances to become a hero, role model, and mentor for herself and many others.

In today’s episode, we talk about the power of a decision, smiles, and the influence we have on others – when we accept that responsibility.

And we talk about sushi, podcasts, and building success ladders around the world!

How 2020 Brought my WHY into Sharper Focus

 

As we approach the end of year 2020, I would like to reach out to family, friends, new and old relationships around the world, and wish you each the very best of health, joy and abundance.

I reflect on all that has happened. Not all of this bizarre year in history was easy or welcome but many events pushed me to stretch my capabilities, learn new skills, create new collaborations and start new businesses.

I made new friends, reached more and different audiences and moved closer to my goals on Identity, Influence and Impact.
