I sat down for brunch at a beautiful seaside pasta restaurant in Brazil, with a new friend.

Whatever it is, take on task that leaves you with something you can sign your name to and be proud of. Even if it’s ugly!

Because I chose to take the world by storm and live the life I chose, I am always under the scrutiny of people who are either trying to justify to themselves why their lack of profundity is acceptable, or, much to my delight, are looking for answers on how to jump-start their own lives, dreams, goals and ambitions. The way I have.
Anais, is a friend and model from America, who’s back for a second round; Najma is a Somalian raised in Kenya who ended up in the USA as she tries to understand what motivates others while she delves into her first business venture; and Sarah is a Canadian sex educator who makes some pretty bold claims about masturbation. They all end up at my table for a talk. This gets loud! ->
