How will you stay the best?

3) Integrity

And most important of all, love what you do and do what you love.

What are your aspirations: business & personal?

Too many to meaningfully narrow down.

Favorite Motto?

Courage- If you're going to be thinking anything, you might as well think BIG.  If you’re not living on the edge, you’re taking up too much space. I have always lived my life in this way.  And never stop growing and developing!!!

Favorite Places?

I love to travel around the world.  I learned lot of other cultures, new experiences and ideas, visiting new and beautiful places, amazing diversity of incredible things to do and unique travel experiences around the globe.  However, my favorite place is always my home in Beverly Hills, California.  My Home is my favourite leisure destination.  It is a place that I would love to come home day after day. I like to spend quality time with my family, which in turn leaves me motivated to be productive the next day.  It is a sweet spot where I can get everything done, maintain healthy relationships, a healthy mind and body.  It’s about being so totally alive in the moment that work, relationships, spirituality, mission, responsibility, and opportunity blend seamlessly into one thing: LIFE.

Current Passions?

I am passionate about children and animals. As a CEO & founder of the non-profit foundation  I have traveled around the world on behalf of my non-profit foundation as a spokeswomen for several charitable alliances that deliver immediate and lasting improvement to children in need in the U.S. and around the world.  Let’s take action to make the world more humane- Changing Lives One at a Time.  It doesn`t cost much to give or receive compassion to/from family, friends or even strangers.  It is liberating , it makes us human.
