We often wonder how we can make the world a better place, we believe we need to “become” someone to have an impact on people’s lives but that is simply not true. We can all play a big or small role in the life of others and brighten up their day. When I was in Toronto, I gave myself a challenge that I would start a conversation with at least one stranger every day.
The Olympic Games end tonight with the closing ceremony. There’s something truly inspirational about The Olympic Games, we get to witness the hardwork, dedication and passion that athletes have for their sport. It’s not just about getting a medal, athletes come to the Olympic Games to surpass themselves and fulfill the dream of a lifetime.
Last month, I had the amazing opportunity to talk about my journey with SoGutsy.com (check them out, they are amazing!)

As some of you may know, I’m in Toronto for the next few weeks. Yesterday, as I was on the plane to Montréal I had the chance to sit next to a lecturer who teaches entrepreneurship at one of London’s business schools. I’m always thirsty for knowledges and couldn’t help but grab the opportunity to learn from someone who has worked with some of the most successful entrepreneurs in the UK.
I asked: What are the three things you would say to an aspiring entrepreneur? You’ll be surprised by his answers:
Without knowing it, we all wear multiple hats. I am an entrepreneur, a sister, a daughter, a friend, a colleague. We always juggle between the different roles of our lives.
When you decide to launch your own business / project (or manage your own music career) the first thing to understand is that you need to wear multiple hats or what I would call ‘multiple personalities’ to improve your success.
I’ve been asked many times: What do you love so much about music? My passion for music has always been difficult to put into words. It’s more about the FEEL and the impact it had and still has on my life. Music is overrated, we trade it, we sell it I know it’s a business after all but we often forget the emotional bond that is created.
We make decisions everyday, big or little. Some of them are really important and will change our life while others are insignificant. The science of decision-making has always fascinated me – according to multiples sources on the web, we make approximately 35.00 decisions each day! Of course it varies between individuals but I find the figure quite impressive.
