'THE CONSCIOUS CONNECTOR’
AMI Global Consulting
WHAT IS YOUR PROFESSIONAL TITLE?
Lifestyle & Branding Specialist, Conscious Connector, Media Personality.
WHAT DO YOU DO ON A DAY-TO-DAY BASIS?
I connect and develop individuals and brands. From a plane, on a boat in a car or at a coffee shop I am always working to develop and create opportunities for my clients.
WHAT DID YOU WANT TO DO WHEN YOU WERE A CHILD AND WHAT CHANGED?
I wanted to be a tv personality. I always knew from a young age I wanted to be on camera, but I wanted to have a message. I always wanted to do work that would have an impact and help others through sharing and connecting.
WHAT ACADEMIC QUALIFICATIONS DO YOU HAVE?
I never finished school. I took classes in Image Consulting and PR at the Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC. Later in life, I took courses in Social Innovation in order to fuel my latest endeavour - The Conscious Connectors a "A Conscious Lifestyle Magazine " created to help promote a healthy world, self and society.
WHAT’S THE BEST CAREER ADVICE YOU’VE EVER BEEN GIVEN?
Make sure you align yourself with and work with people who live by a code of ethics and have the same value systems and beliefs.
WHO IS YOUR ROLE MODEL AND WHY?
Oprah. Who doesn't love Oprah?! An awakened soul with a voice and message for women that uplifts, inspires and empowers.
WHAT IS THE BEST THING ABOUT YOUR CURRENT WORKING ENVIRONMENT?
Whether I am on an island or in a big city every day has a different view. I think of it as "Life by design".
WHAT WOULD YOU CHANGE ABOUT YOUR DAILY WORK ROUTINE IF YOU COULD?
Good question. I am not sure. I am quite happy. Maybe to have my family closer? But what does close really mean when I am always travelling?
WHERE DO YOU SEE YOURSELF PROFESSIONALLY IN FIVE YEARS’ TIME?
Developing more programs that will help others live their best life.
DO YOU FEEL YOU CAN BE THE SAME PERSON AT WORK AND IN PRIVATE?
Today I can. Once I decided to be authentic and work on projects with purpose, and within a like-minded community, my life changed. I am ME always.
DOES DIVERSITY MATTER TO YOU?
Sure does. We are all different. Can you imagine how boring things would be if we all looked, acted and thought the same. Zzzz!!!
HOW GOOD IS YOUR WORK LIFE BALANCE?
Hhhmm, I would like to say it's gotten a lot better. I love what I do so it never feels like work. But...my spiritual, mental and physical well-being come first. If I am not well I cannot do good for others. Your HEALTH IS YOUR WEALTH.
WHAT QUALITIES DOES BEING IN YOUR ROLE NECESSITATE?
You definitely have to be creative, good at relationship building and approachable. My work requires a lot of travelling, attending and creating events and connecting my clients with those I meet along the way. I am passionate about all of it, and that is key in anything you do.
