IN THOSE DAYS BOOKS WERE AS RARE AS ORANGES, CHOCOLATE AND HAM.

My childhood was made of a room with a foldable bed, barely wide enough to squeeze through to the tiny kitchen. Mum and I lacked everything. What we did have was books. Lots of them. On one of the shelves, tightly stacked were Tanglewood Tales, English, Lithuanian and Moon Fairy Tales, The Singing Lime Tree, a red bound Andersen and a violet clad La Fontaine. All acquired over the years. There was also a higher, “forbidden” shelf. The 9 volumes of The book of 1001 Nights and Decameron sat there tempting my imagination.

As a student I hitchhiked around Europe. I found even greater fascination for the true stories I encountered along the way. I remember as if it was yesterday. A car filled with stuff and a young nurse, on her way to her first job, telling me her love stories for the elderly she took care of. Lights flashing through the windshield and the gray- haired driver telling about his son who refuses to talk to him anymore. My ears ringing with secrets of management from one of the Nokia directors. Years later, I still remember the talk among the snow clad trees as the best lesson in life and business. True stories… the successes and failures.

TELL ME WHAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO ACHIEVE AND WHAT IS HOLDING YOU BACK AND I WILL SHOW YOU HOW WORKING ON YOUR STORY WILL HELP YOU ATTAIN THAT GOAL.

“I cannot do it”, “I will not make it” and I can’t” for me are just words. I have gone to Spain on a bicycle with only $10 in my pocket. Working tables in Paris I put enough money aside to buy a studio in just a year. I also took a year to write a PHD while being tied to a wheelchair. As a single mother, I left the corporate TV world and started my own company, not even knowing what was the difference between marketing and PR. Just before turning 50, I wrote a visual storytelling manual, I finished another post graduate course and became a coach.

In January 2014, I took my son on a hitchhiking trip around New Zealand wearing a t-shirt with the motto: “Don’t worry, tell a story”. For my 50th birthday, it took me just 40 days to write and publish a book Fulfill Your Dream, Your Dream Will Fulfill You. 12 Life Lessons From The Grand Canyon. I believe that the most beautiful times are still to come. It is the same for You. I wish that for you from the bottom of my heart. You didn’t come here by chance.
