How did I get to be a
engineering student slash ecofashion designer that is passionate about making our world a

Every day I am asked about success and what it takes to be successful. Without even thinking I think most people are trained to say that luck and networking are keys to success. However, I know from personal experience that neither luck nor networking have contributed to my success in life and business. In fact, I do not have a fairytale story about success. I know a lot about failure and I fell flat on my face. My business almost collapsed three times and it did not look like I would ever recover. I know what it feels like to have people mocking you and criticizing your dreams. It seemed like the dream was dying right before my eyes. Despite all of that my business stands stronger than ever and I have built a brand that is recognized around the world. Here are a few pillars for living an uncommon life...

Secrets for Creating a Successful Life

Life is about finding meaning. One of the reasons I was so conflicted about telling my story years ago is because I was not healed. A lot of pain and wounds in my life prevented me from seeing the value of my story. I have learned that until you deal with the trauma in your life you cannot create a story of triumph. When I finally got over all the pain and disappointment I was able to discover what makes my life so distinct. In other words, I believe that you will always live a powerless life without purpose. Every story that is not woven together by purpose is a story that will be filled with pain. We were all created to fulfill a unique purpose. Find the meaning in your life and refuse to forfeit your moment.

What does an empowered life look like?

It is a question that I have been pondering for years. In fact, it is the reason that I do the work that I do around the world. I believe that we were all created to live an empowered life. Unfortunately, most people are living a meaningless existence and living below their true potential. Until we wake up to the amazing truth that we were created to be more we will continue to live in defeat. You can make a decision today to live an empowered life...

In a digital age where everyone is connected to their devices, it seems that it has become harder for us to be alone with our own thoughts. We sit right on the edge of evolution in our lives but only in the silence can we discover the answers that we so desperately need...

Five Reasons Why Your New Year’s Resolution Will Fail

4 min read

Every human being who ever achieved greatness in life, first wishes for it and then plans on how to make it a reality. For instance: setting a New Year’s resolution is a promise that you make to act on your wish for self-improvement, such as losing weight, quitting smoking, start eating healthily, learning a new skill or even starting a new business.
During the first month of the year, you start acting towards you resolutions very strongly and confidently. Some of you even brag about it to your friends and through social media: #NewYearNewMe, #FitJourney, #weightlossgoals.
