#3 My Story

 

This is a picture of me the day I landed in Canada. I remember it like it was yesterday.

I didn’t know where to get started but I was ready to work hard to build my Canadian dream.

I quickly realized that if I wanted to be successful, I had to network and promote myself.

A couple of years later - as a result of building my network and growing my online presence - I was hired by one of the advisors to Barack Obama. During the time being, I advise high profiles such as politicians and businessmen on how to amplify their voice and develop a legacy-driven personal brand.

It's shortly after that I launched The Smart Woman and helped thousands of women to develop their leadership influence by building their skills in personal branding, effective communication and relationship building.
