I challenge entrepreneurs to move past their limiting beliefs and soar with their strengths!
My focus is to guide active entrepreneurial thinkers to engage, thrive and grow by helping you initially discover your WHY (your purpose, what drives you, what’s important to you); WHAT you want to achieve, and HOW you’re going to get there. Next, we will work together on how to build on Clifton Strengths, through focusing on your talents and being accountable to your commitments.
I will help you shift from feeling stuck to:
- Gaining clarity to find and define your purpose. - Understanding the ups and downs of being an entrepreneur and how to push through. - Taking actionable steps towards accomplishing impactful goals.
Here’s a bit about me:
As a fellow entrepreneur, I've co-founded several companies - including a staffing and recruiting agency for digital talent, a creative studio focused on graphic novels, produced an indie comedy sold to Icon Productions, and a digital agency for premium brands.
I am currently the founder of Life Work Integration, coaching entrepreneurs and leaders globally. In addition, I’m an executive facilitator for XLN (the Executive Leadership Network), and I conduct workshops for Vistage groups, YPO forums, and EO Chapters.
As a member of the Entrepreneurs' Organization (EO), a global business network of 13,000+ business owners in 57 countries, I have served as chapter president and spent 3 years helping EO open new chapters in Africa, China, and South America.
I was a Tedx speaker in 2016 and have served on the boards of Make-a-Wish LA and AIGA LA.
Born in NYC, I grew up in Iran, went to boarding school in England and then France before returning to the US to attend Syracuse University, earning a BA in French and an MA in International Relations from the Maxwell School of Citizenship.
I have been a competitive fencer for over 40 years, have won 3 Veteran US National Championships and have represented the USA 6 times at the over 50 World Championships.
Over the years, I have found that focusing on 3 simple things drive me:
1. Always learn and grow. 2. Accept responsibility to change (within me) what is no longer acceptable. 3. Guide others along the way.
And, I draw from my combined experiences to strive towards developing your success in life and work!
