LT: While building a career in the global corporate world...

I understood the importance of choosing a more balanced and harmonious life. It took me some time (10+ years) and several trips to Asia to learn how to counter-balance a complex and demanding professional life, one that I loved and work passionately for… I became a big fan of Tai Chi, Qi Gong, meditation,  pilates and yoga, and I have learnt to honor and respect the golden trio (body, mind and soul) with a healthy lifestyle – clean and green food, moderate exercise, emotional detox, a healthy dosage of curiosity & enthusiam and cultivating the virtues with a kind and generous mindset. I know it is important to love what you do (both professionally and personally) and never forget about your dreams. Even when you reach them, don’t stop! There is no expiration date on dreams – dream another dream!

I believe in the power of Woow, of inspiration, of paying forward. Indeed, with maturity, comes wisdom and now, I love to be a Mentor and a Coach! I am so grateful to all my Mentees for their precious lessons! They all make me see how wonderful it is to co-create a better future together, to stay optimistic and highly motivated to keep going, no matter what.
