I am a MOM, business coach, business owner, employe engagement expert
My personal development started by 35 years old and since then I joined many trainings, got coaching and mentoring. And still going on. Learning new things is a part of my life and helps me to create a better me each day.
I was 27 and unfortunately I prioritised my career to my daughter. It should be a balance and I regret.
Be satisfied whatever you do and having quality time with your family
Mentoring is not only sharing experiences but also to check yourself with each new person and learn from them. It is my life purpose.
Everything is neutral until you give them a meaning. Life is beautiful if you are ready to shape it as you wish.
