When I first met Mark Robert Michael Wahlberg (Marky Mark) it
was in LA and I was shocked at how nice of a guy he was! I mean,
they are all stars and I know that, but he was truly gracious. He
expresses his faith in God to the world, sane love for his wife, and
adoration of kids with a foundation. Mark's gym is a great example.

which is a terrific idea for all of us. Many exercised this
past 16-months by walking from the couch to the
kitchen and back as we isolated ourselves for safety.
2021 has been a tough year for many entrepreneurs,
with multiple businesses closing down and new
businesses mushrooming. Many entrepreneurs had to
find new ways of doing business and find new ways to
solve complex problems. After canceling multiple live
events and conferences due to Covid 19, I, too, had to
find new ways of running my business events, celebrity
interviews, and speaking gigs. I had the awesome
opportunity of partnering with the US Presidential
Service Center to publish this terrific magazine.
This month we are so excited to be featuring some of
the world's most inspiring organisations, entrepreneurs,
CEOs, and Humanitarians. Despite the downturn, we
have all learned how to pivot, reinvent, and flow around
the large abrupt rocks dropped into our normal streams
of life. In this issue, we are proud of numerous ladies
empowerment articles and please take note of the
snippets of presidential information throughout.
We have often included First Ladies' comments and
quotes and look forward to more articles from our
readers about vice presidents. The US Presidential
Service Center supports the showcase of both
presidential offices with first and second families of the
land. In addition to that, we welcome new stories about
the staff and team in the many civilian offices
supporting the presidency and the White House Military
Office. There is no end to fascination about the
plumbers, calligraphers, florists, Marine One, Air Force

famous dinners at Camp David! We welcome your
input and articles.

he Well of Wishes & Help
How often have we thrown our bucket down into the well only
to pull it back up and find it bone dry? With your family
relations - or in business dealings.
The Presidents and Vice Presidents watch how many times they
empty individual wells. They have maps of where they are all at
and allow aquifers to replenish them. Such is a good idea and
example for your business and family relationships. Before you
drain down another time - allow for replenishment. Or why
drain people to nothing at all?
Keeping a healthy supply of water level in wells of hope,
relations, diplomacy, and business is smarter. So drop your
bucket in and pull out fullness every time!

Petrus: a one-of-a-kind watch that marks the time of a
centuries-old history. KEFA is a Roman start-up that
transformed a simple watch into a treasure chest of
It is no secret that the world of watchmaking is
populated with passing trends along with immortal
brands that render prestige for the wearer their raison
d’être. Today, the timepiece market is truly saturated.
Making a name for yourself means competing with the
Titans in the sector and with the Maisons that have also
forged watchmaking history. So, how can a new entry
stand out amongst a myriad of giants of time? The
answer lies in presenting a truly innovative idea to make
a watch that is more than a simple timepiece or mere
status symbol. The answer lies in creating a unique object
that, in addition to its material value, can be rich in meaning
and capable of expressing and transmitting different values,
not only focused on the wearer’s ego but also virtuous and
shareable with other people.
Small Made in Italy start-ups grow ideas, courage, and an
ace up the sleeve. So today, talking about great values that
translate into new ideas and projects to be implemented
means talking about start-ups, new frontiers of innovation,
and being “different from the rest.” And we are here to talk
precisely about one start-up in particular.
"When George Washington wanted a new watch in 1788, he wrote
his fellow Founding Father Gouverneur Morris, asking him to buy
one for him in Paris. Morris, who would become U.S. minister to
France three years later, was making a business trip there.
Washington asked for a simple, gold watch of good quality, similar to
the big, slender one that Thomas Jefferson had gotten for James

KEFA is an Italian start-up, born just over a year ago in the Eternal City, a
short distance from the Vatican. For KEFA, taking the plunge and diving
into the crowded sea of prestigious watchmaking meant having to present
itself with all the credentials to compete with the greats right from the
And the cards that KEFA played proved to be a decidedly winning hand.
The company held an exclusive concession from the Vatican authorities to
utilise two official symbols of the Holy See to create the Petrus as the first
model created by the Italian brand. But, of course, we are not talking about
any old symbols - but about the Emblem of the Vatican City State and the
Coat of Arms of Pope Francis, personally chosen by him in 2013 when he
rose to the papal throne. Today, Petrus proudly bears these prestigious
emblems fused on the dial and case back.
A recipe for success – combining business and solidarity. But how did the
two founders of KEFA realise this dream and become “entrepreneurs of
value”? First, they firmly believed in their project and created a brand whose
indisputable principle, more than mere business, is also a higher moral
value: solidarity. Second, this company philosophy led the two founders,
Carmelo Caruso and Gianluigi Di Lorenzo, to donate part of the proceeds
from Petrus timepieces to the Vatican Science and Faith Foundation –
STOQ and to its charitable purposes.
A story that has come full circle, with KEFA eager to be distinguished by its
values and unique product, all conveyed in the choice to concretely
characterise its corporate soul with much higher and more supportive
Down-to-earth Harry S. Truman wasn’t into
fashion trends, except, apparently, when it
came to watches. During the 23-day Potsdam
Conference convened in the summer of 1945
to determine the future of Germany, Truman
wore the most popular chronograph of the
time, a Universal Genève Tri-Compax.
Universal Genève had introduced the watch
the year before. The watch had so many
admirers, thanks in part to its very
complicated but elegant styling.
Written by Norma Buchanan
KSaint Peter, Petrus, and KEFA: the three facets of an
ambitious project: Yet, there is even more to this endeavour since,
for the founders of KEFA, embarking on this adventure also meant
something else: chasing their dream and creating something unique
that would leave its mark. To do so, they decided to reinvent
themselves, going from simple state officials to entrepreneurs.
Hence, a change of life inspired by a specific figure, that of Saint
Peter, appears repeatedly throughout the history of Christianity.
Peter, the man who abandoned life as a fisherman to undertake a
higher mission alongside Jesus, the man who lends his name (in its
Latin version) to the Petrus watch and, in Aramaic, the name of the
brand KEFA, which means “stone” (or, “Pietra” in Italian).
And here lies the deeper meaning of a watch that seeks to be more
than a simple timepiece: wearing it means feeling part of a large
family that is the spokesperson of universal values shared by more
than a billion Christians worldwide. A different way to assert
themselves – on the up and up. Thus, an object that is more than a
mere watch, that is always with you, is to be shown off (why not?)
as a veritable treasure chest of thousand-year-old values but above
all, a distinctive symbol that can represent enrich and characterise
A limited-edition numbered series of 2013 pieces, whose number
one piece is today in the hands of the very person to have inspired
the timepiece: Pope Francis. After an official meeting, Carmelo
Caruso and Gianluigi Di Lorenzo personally handed the watch over
to His Holiness. Why KEFA? Because the history of KEFA and its
two founders can be an example for all new entrepreneurs and
young start-uppers with a great dream. After all, if pursued with
courage and conviction, great ideas are always rewarded.

“The Successful Woman” (TSW)
initiative is a global movement
that unlocks women's next level of
success. TSW activates this
growth by supporting women to
achieve holistic success in all
areas of your life.
Because the fundamentals for
success in education are generally
not taught in mainstream
schooling or Universities, our
philosophy is to provide you
proven insights and tools based on
the three main pillars of mindset,
heart set, and soul set.
When these are enhanced in
combination, they positively
impact all aspects of life.
All women are born with the power to do
amazing things in life, yet too many
settle for mediocrity. At TSW, we aim to
optimize their personal transformation to
collectively and effectively evolve as a
tribe of timeless, elegant, beautiful,
powerful, and successful women.
Ron Malhotra founded TSW, a worldclass
mentor, thought leader, bestselling
author, global speaker, wealth specialist,
and business advisor who is absolutely
passionate about empowering women to
achieve success. He recognized a
shortcoming in available education
specifically for women to enable a
holistic, successful life.
Namrita Chandi and Joanna James were
appointed chief ambassadors for their
passion for serving other women to
succeed. Both having worked in
predominantly male-dominated domains,
they offer a wealth of life and
Many women find the predominant
focus of their lives is preparing for
their careers, without appropriate
support in preparation for the things
that truly determine our experiences,
the quality of our relationships,
health, mindset, and wellbeing. Yet,
paradoxically the deep work that
TSW curates also boosts career
progression, clarity, and confidence
for Women by identifying their life’s
purpose and passion.

inclusion and diversity while focusing
on all women's commonalities,
including the feminine power we seek
to connect with.

THE KEYS TO UNLOCKING YOUR VISION
By Senela Jayasuriya, an award-winning business strategy & leadership coach,
helping women around the world to build their brand and business inside out.
“Our deepest fear is not that we
are inadequate. Our deepest
fear is that we are powerful
- Marianne Williamson (Author and Activist)
Have you ever heard about the ABCs to
be a strong woman? Strong women are
Assertive, Bold, and Courageous. And
how could one get there? How could we
grow in our confidence and boldness
while gaining inner clarity and courage
to go after the things that really matter to
us? How could we raise our vibration
levels to attract abundance and strength
to live a life we deserve?
I am a business strategy and Leadership
coach, and my personal coaching and
mentoring programs help women build
their brand and business inside out. I
also run a global Women in Business
and Women in Leadership online
academy. My programs have a network
reach in over 50 countries worldwide. I
work with amazing global influencers
worldwide on masterclasses and
mentoring programs and emerging
leaders to help them pivot to their next
level. The coaching program I’ve
designed have been conducted in over 20
countries to date.
In my work area and working with women worldwide, I help them
through their personal and business leadership goals and needs. I feel so
blessed and grateful that I get to practice and teach what it takes to create
a life we desire filled with purpose and passion.
Let’s first start with “Why is finding vision so hard?”
Let me tell you! I could speak to this from my own experience as a
woman who had difficulty figuring out her purpose and passion. Like for
many of us, the biggest conundrum I had is not really knowing who we
are or recognizing what we are capable of. Let’s start there. Because
without even knowing whom we are, being comfortable in our own skin,
or loving ourselves to know our worth – until that time, we could never be
successful in supporting others to love themselves and recognize their
Next, let’s look at “What makes a personal vision powerful?” Let’s start
with defining what a vision is? I like to describe it as a future state of
being that you desire and imagine that fulfills your ultimate sense of
connectedness to your soul purpose and soul satisfaction. Note my words
“soul purpose,” not the sole purpose.
Elements that make a vision powerful are made up of the following strong levels of impact:
1. Impact on self is the impact the vision has on your life, goals,
relationships, and health.
2. Impact on growth is the impact through progressing by achieving
planned goals towards your vision.
3. Impact on others is the underscore we give towards supporting the
ecosystem at a scale beyond yourself.
Figure: Senela's three
elements and impacts
Now let’s go over some fundamental steps and keys to help you
find your vision and unlock your potential.
Fundamental keys are:
Key 1: Get clarity for your vision.
Key 2: Own your vision, you can’t outsource it.
Key 3: Look at the foundational steps to start working on it so you can vocalize it with
an action plan.
About the author
I challenge you; the sooner you check out my keys to
unlocking your vision by grabbing a notepad and pen
and going through the thought process, and journaling
your answers, you will feel motivated. Please make
note; it’s important to remember that, after going
through the above 3 steps and writing down your
vision summary and approach, and by chance, if you
don’t feel like you can really connect with it and get
passionate about it – then start back at step 1. Yes, you
heard me – REPEAT! I once read a quote by Tony
Robbins that said, “repetition is the mother of skill.”
So, keep doing this exercise a few times until you feel
truly aligned with the outcome. After all, you can’t
move forward unless you find clarity and a vivid image
in your mind about where you want to go.
I am very passionate about this process because this is
the same one that I designed to help myself when I
needed it most! I am so grateful that I get to pass it on
and share it with you, and I would love for you to
apply it and let me know how it goes by writing back
to me and sharing the experience of what that internal
journey was for you. As a transformational coach
working with women worldwide, I have observed that
we are all seeking meaning and purpose universally.
And our possibilities and potential are limitless. We are
ever-changing and ever-evolving cosmic energy
waiting to explode into magnificent forms of value that
can be experienced one explosion at a time.
If you would like to learn more about how you could
join my coaching program to help you (in my words)
“find your vision, own your vision and vocalize your
vision,” then reach out to me once you’re ready to
invest your time and energy to let me help you get
“unstuck” and build the foundational steps to empower
you to live your best life. I honour you and want to
encourage you to begin with the journey of self-love,
which leads to ultimate self-fulfillment and a legacy
that could potentially leave a positive impact on a
footprint larger than yours.

March 8 is International Women’s Day. In
2021, the theme was “Choose to Challenge.”
Over the century, women have progressed,
but at the same time, the current generation
is better disposed to prove its worth. As a
result, several collective efforts and active
steps have been taken to advance women in
the corporate world.
All aspects of men and women’s behaviour are impacted due to
pervasive gender stereotypes. Expansive literature on social
psychology and organisational development indicates that gender
stereotypes lead to universal expectations that force women to
view themselves in a certain way, especially where leadership is
required. The perceived effectiveness in leadership is also affected
by the differences in leadership styles.
It takes women who have it to lead an
organisation effectively. Yet, most of the
people at the top are men. It also means that
rather than advising women to act like men
to get ahead, it would be better if men could
learn some lessons in leadership from them.
In a nutshell, men should do some things
that women do – motivating through
transformation, empathising, and enriching
A woman’s career is primarily dependent on
her ability to adjust to the male-dominated
culture. If they play by the existing
workplace rules, there are other hurdles in
societal perceptions about how they should
be seen. Education and awareness are
changing that too, but there are still some
challenges to overcome. Women leaders
must embrace the role-model status to
address these impediments and answer them
Social psychology and organisational development literature on
gender stereotypes provide insight into pervasive expectations that
influence how women are perceived or view themselves in
situations where leadership is required. Differences in leadership
styles associated with gender affect the apparent effectiveness of
leaders. A ‘consideration’ of behaviour is essentially categorised as
feminine while ‘structuring’ a behaviour remains masculine. This
also means that the consistency of characterisation of the
masculine gender role is perceived as more structured, designed,
Current Women Power Index
In September 2020, the CFR Women’s Policy Program conducted
a study that said that the WPI (Women Power Index) ranks 193 in
progress towards gender parity. The report analysed the proportion
of women that served as heads of governments across cabinets,
This, even though women hold almost 52% of all professional-level and management jobs. Research also indicates that
companies embracing diversity in the top quartile are more likely to experience above-average profitability. The where
and how of the gap: Stubborn stereotypes, stigmas, and societal challenges are still roadblocks to advancement – even in
the 21st century. Therefore, the first step towards progress is to understand the dynamics of an equal workplace. A diverse
and inclusive workforce always corroborates a collective effort.
For women in leadership roles, data
from the United States is rather
stifling. American women fall
substantially behind men in terms of
their representation across

“The search for human freedom can never be
complete without freedom for women.” — Betty Ford
Self-Love is the most underrated emotion – not by society but by us, the women. So we
have been conditioned all through our initial years to be the primary care & love givers
to our family that we have forgotten to love ourselves in the process. Be it serving the
best-baked bread to your husband or putting your health on the back burner to care for
your elders, or never buying yourself fancy stuff so that your kid can enjoy expensive
toys -you never are your own priority. So for International Women’s Day each year,
let's practice “Self-Love” by embracing these 15 changes in your life.
I Love You- say this loudly every morning to yourself, looking at a mirror multiple
times with a deep breath of gratitude to yourself.
I love how you are- too fat, thin, tall, and short; it just doesn’t matter. Be
comfortable in your skin.
Be your own critic but don’t overdo it. Sometimes it’s important to pat your own
back for your achievements. Wear your badge with pride.
Surround yourself with people who love and encourage you. Let them remind you
just how amazing you are.
there is no one
else like you
in the world.
Stop comparing yourself to others. Every
different & unique.
You need to be a better version of yourself.
Walk out of toxic relationships – an abusive husband and emotionally
overburdening friend or children who don’t value you. Any person who makes you
feel less loved or doesn’t invest time in the relationship as much as you do- it’s
better to say “goodbye.”
Raise a toast to every win of yours, even if no one else does. Celebrate your
progress with yourself.
Try something new at regular intervals – a new hobby, a new hairstyle, a new habit.
Step outside of your comfort zone, and you will be surprised when you surpass your
Say No – very important to learn to say no when it is easy to say Yes. It gives out a strong
message that you can speak up & stand up for what you believe in.
Forgive yourself. You will always have some moments when you would have behaved
weirdly or embarrassed yourself – just let it go. You cannot change the past so make peace
with it, forgive, and move on.
Do what you love for yourself- head out for your favourite coffee, grab your favourite
ice cream or walk to your favourite place to be with yourself. Gift yourself some “Me”
To Hell with your Haters. There will always be someone out there or rather many
of them around you who will hate you for being you. Let them be in their own
Your Happiness is important and is internal. Do not & I repeat, do not give the reins
of your happiness in anyone’s hands-how much ever important that person is in
Express yourself in any way you can. We are conditioned not to express our
feelings loudly or in public. Each of us has pushed ourselves to sleep with tears
wetting our pillows at some point in our life. Shed that tear, howl at that traumatic
experience, paint it, write it, sing it, dance it out, if you can’t do any of this. Just
talk it out but express you must.
Write yourself a letter of appreciation for the small or big things you do or
achieve. Self-praise is a big part of self-love.
Self-love is not a science that can be learned or taught; it is actually an art
that needs to be practised daily. So, start today!

your ability, and then be tough

"Certainly, in the next 50 years, we shall see
a woman president, perhaps sooner than
you think. A woman can and should be able
to do any political job that a man can do."
President Richard M. Nixon
Now, as we focus on reflecting on the inspiring & aspiring “Women” we are all surrounded by, I see a set of
unique patterns & traits they show up with. These are their natural gifts & talents that make them who they
are and represent “Woman Hood.”
• A Doer
• A Guide
• A Fighter
• A Multitasker
• A Role Model • A Problem solver
• A Patient listener • A Pillar of strength
• A Soft at heart, Strong in mind
• A Creator, Nurturer & Caregiver
• A Compassionate heart centred on a human who trusts
As we explore the role of women in “leadership” roles and, more importantly, as a living symbol of
“womanhood,” it is important to understand what these two words literally mean and how best can we explain
their confluence in meaning, intent, and more importantly what we see around us yet sometimes stays in the
realm of the “unsaid & unseen.”
Merriam-Webster defines leadership as “the power or ability to lead other people”. ... Leadership- is the
ability to direct me and influence those around me, role model expected behaviours, and leverage strengths, so
everyone feels fulfilled and valued.
1a: the state of being a woman.
b: the distinguishing character or qualities of a
woman or womankind.
Let me now take you all through a journey we all are
familiar with, but it is essential to set the context to
what is important to understand about the traits of a
“Woman” who reflects her true abilities as a
Think of any woman you have seen & been within
your life, as a Mom, Partner, Co-Worker, Sibling,
Friend, Boss, or any other role through which she
would have impacted your life.
She is a born leader, a giver, a creator and nurturer
of the human race right from carrying the human
race in her womb to nurturing it and being the
caretaker; she is in heart and soul a leader who never
gives up trusts her instincts and those she cares for,
& is a role model who always leads by example.
Isn’t this true?
She is a guide & a teacher who builds foundational
values in our being and allows a safe, supportive
trustworthy space for open & fearless conversations
not only with children but with partners, friends &
colleagues as a compassionate, trusted confidante.
As a person, I refer to women being the best “circus
artist”, a juggler of many hats, and a joker who has
emotions hidden deep down in her skin but shows
what is needed & important to those she selflessly
cares for and loves. I want us to think about this
simple yet obvious observation to recognise the
inborn “Leadership” traits that “Women” show up
with across continents and roles.
As we see through these roles and journey of a
Womanhood of Definition
woman we all have experienced in our lives in some
form or the other, some things that stand out for me
and worth highlighting are her natural leadership
qualities, abilities, and gifts that she lives day in and
day out without even realizing that they all are being
manifested through her being the “woman” she is
Womanhood is a truly a symbol of Leadership, heartcentred,
servant leadership which comes to every
woman naturally, it is for them and for us to see the
“unseen “and start acknowledging the “unsaid”.
"A woman is born to lead and
shows up with her instincts and
qualities to create, build,
nurture, motivate, guide,
support, evolve, and be a
listener, problem solver, and
above all, a role model who
never gives up on those she
Questions that come to my mind and I want to bring
out here for us to introspect within.

strive to evolve through as what “Womanhood”
brings to women as their natural gift?

Children are not born with an
instruction manual for life; that
is, they learn from the example
of their parents. Therefore, we
can say that example is a
natural way of nurturing and
guiding. It is the same with the
leadership of a country. No
matter what the policies and
laws of the state are, the nation
will always work and live as its
leader lives. Therefore, we can
say that the best leader is the
one who leads the country as he
feels and lives. This means that
he is honest with himself, and
the nation will follow him
I have always fought against violence in all areas. However, in my work, I have
found that most of the silence is in hidden violence. Especially when leaders act
out their psychological complexes on their employees, citizens don't say that they
physically abuse them, but they demand something from them to satisfy their ego.

is only an apparent motivation, but in reality, it is manipulation. That's why very

Dynamilogy is the active study of "living" processes and phenomena related to
humans and nature! It is a new branch of science that I formed based on physics,
psychology, and economics.
People know me in the media as
a professor at the university, an
advisor to presidents of states
and large corporations, and
numerous books on leadership
and relationships. Therefore,
with this article, I will try to
present myself a little
differently, and what is not
visible is of great importance
for the development of the
world and peace in the world.
It is decoding nature’s secrets of a sort. Only if we look at nature, we see that everything is simple and that everything
works independently. And we often say that it would be great if it were like that also in our lives.
Let’s examine a diamond as an example. A diamond is made of carbon. But graphite is also made of carbon. So the
difference between the two is only in the atomic structure. And if we transfer this fact to our economy, how much
graphite would we have to sell to get a value equal to the value of one solid diamond?
"LET'S EXAMINE A DIAMOND AS AN EXAMPLE"
The whole secret is, therefore, in the right order. The code of nature is in the right order. If we compare a business
process or a process in personal life with natural processes, we quickly figure out what we are doing wrong. This way,
we will also quickly come up with a formula for success. Therefore, we need to put the process in our personal or
business life in the right order.
Then I developed a business leadership model from
Dynamilogy. A Dynamic Leadership Model that comes
from nature and develops and encourages people to
have a positive side. Thus, in a dream, a system for
managing the future was created, bringing a whole new
economy in the future, for which I was also nominated
for the Nobel Prize in Economics!
That's why, when I advise world leaders, I make it a
priority to help them develop their potential and be as
honest as possible. Above all, I am honest with them
and do not wrap their advice in fine words and praise.
But I also lead in a certain way.
Of course, I don't just help with words, and I also help
with actions. As an active member of the Informative
Protection Association, we help to separate real
migrants from those who exploit the system or are even
dangerous in the world. At the International Police
Association, I help the security authorities, especially
with their mental health.
As Knights of Malta, we mainly help in different parts of the world through
various charities. Lately, I have moved from being a counsellor and a
professor mainly to fieldwork solving various conflicts in the world.
Thus, I am actively involved in saving the nations of the world that live in no
man's land and deserve their stance or at least autonomy.
My latest and current project
is to resolve the status of
Western Sahara, specifically
the nation waiting for 40
years for a referendum that
was agreed upon as part of
the UN. However, due to
various interests and
manipulations, more than
200,000 people are
suffering. Therefore, I have
set myself the task of
clarifying their status at the
highest level next year.
I am always on the honest
side and those who want to
fulfil their potential, which
is also the only thing that
will save the world.

ONLY WAY BUSINESSES CAN
THIS DECADE OF DISRUPTION
by carmen wilde
The devastating impact of lockdowns has exposed just how vulnerable
businesses and industries are to disruptive socioeconomic forces. This raises
the question, “Was this a ‘once-in-a-lifetime’ crisis, or a sign of what’s to
come and what business leaders need to gear themselves for in the future?”
According to two leading Futurists, Jerome Glenn and David Houle, whom I
recently interviewed on www.BwBTV.net, many disruptive events await us
over the next decade. If leaders do not become masterful at navigating and
adapting quickly to disruptive changes, businesses, industries, and
economies will collapse in the chaos and the very survival of humanity as
we know it will be at risk.
This might sound dramatic, but we need to look at the widespread
convergence of social, economic, political, and environmental crises on a
global and national scale right now, and how this has negatively impacted
businesses, families and individuals, to see that leaders across the board, are
not geared to respond effectively to these threats. Even the most optimistic
thinkers among us realize we need to shake the tree and start to think and act
dramatically different to how we have until now!
Is Covid-19 The Cause Of This Disruption Or Simply The Straw That Broke The Camel’s Back? Let’s reverse before
Covid-19 and look closely at the general condition and integrity of business and leadership structures. A frank analysis
would reveal, on the whole, an impressive fasçade grossly lacking in substance to withstand any form of strength-testing
on a disruptive scale. Instead, these structures are infected with greed, self-interest, disparity, corruption, fragmentation,
division, parasitism, predatorial competition, and an immeasurably long list of traits that support the ‘every man for
himself’ model that has infected the core of our economic and social systems.
It’s a time bomb that’s been waiting to explode!
Unfortunately, it took a crisis of global proportions to
reveal these fatal flaws. The economic and social
fallout of lockdowns has exposed just how weak we
are when we are not united and reminded us of
what’s really important. Only in the aftermath are
more people beginning to realize how interconnected
our fates are. Businesses or leaders who did not have
a trusted network, community or collaborative
partnerships to lean on and ride out the storm with
were the most vulnerable.
A warning shot has been fired across our bow, and
it’s time to raise our game radically! It’s no longer
enough for leaders to be ‘change fit; they need to be
‘game-changer-geared’! To achieve this, we don’t
need cleverer leaders; we need conscious leaders!
CONSCIOUS Leaders Will Be The Architects Of A
A dramatic departure from the past to succeed going
forward is for leaders to constantly choose to take the
‘me hat’ off and put the ‘we hat’ on, to see fellow
entrepreneurs as collaborators, not competitors.
Collaborative leaders will not only survive and thrive
but will lead the charge into the next decade.
By working together as a united force, we CAN
create abundance and add sustainable value to each
other. When humans work together, in concert, in
pursuit of a common goal, we’re unstoppable!
In my business coaching practice, I’ve seen vastly
different outcomes for those entrepreneurs or
corporate leaders who embraced the fact that
‘normal’ was a thing of the past and that VUCA
(volatile, uncertain, complex, ambiguous) was here to
stay. This led to re-invention strategies and pivots that
paved the way for growth despite the disruption. For
example, a listed client in the retail and hospitality
industry avoided being hit as hard as other
organisations in the industry because of a conscious
style of leadership employed by the CEO, who was
able to make changes that ensured no one was
retrenched. Shareholders could enjoy returns, albeit
slightly less than anticipated. This is a feat of epic
proportions only possible with a conscious leader at
"Conscious leaders will be the
architects of a prosperous future."
Conscious Leaders know that all outcomes flow from their
actions and inactions. They take full ownership of shaping
future outcomes, overcoming challenges, and formulating
innovative solutions to problems as they arise. They carefully
consider the direct and indirect causal impact of their
decisions and actions over time on all stakeholders and the
larger environment they influence.
Conscious Leaders are quick to hold themselves accountable
and take corrective action when outcomes are undesirable or
fall short of expectations. They are not a slave to pride or habit
and won’t hesitate to eradicate redundant or legacy thinking,
systems or processes that no longer serve the interests of the
business or the environment it influences.
Four Core Skills Of Conscious Leaders
The Conscious Leader understands that the success and
sustainability of any business are driven by creating and
exchanging value between operating elements of the
ecosystem it exists within. Therefore, the single-minded
pursuit of profits at the expense of value creation can never
result in sustainable success. In contrast, sustainable profits are
a natural by-product of the ongoing creation of value.
The Conscious Leader builds businesses to last by upholding
the principles of fair exchange, thereby safeguarding the
balanced flow of energy exchanged between operating
elements of the ecosystem.
More value is created within such an environment than is
consumed, which expands the ecosystem and drives its own
evolution to the benefit of all.
More and more thought leaders are drawing the same
conclusion… competition needs to become a remnant of our
past because we cannot survive the future alone and will only
thrive as a species when we finally muster the power of our
The next leap in our economic evolution will materialise
when businesses work together towards a common goal,
bound by a common cause, rather than in competition
with each other in pursuit of their own self-interests.
Conscious Leaders strive to unite businesses and
combine efforts to CO-CREATE far more value in cooperation
with one another than could ever be
collectively created alone or in competition with each
other. Co-Creation requires sincere co-operation
between parties, built on high-trust relationships united
by the desire to create a compelling vision of the future
for the benefit of all. Never before has building highquality
relationships been more important.
In his BwB TV interview, respected influencer David
Homan explains why ‘Relational Value’ is one of the
most untapped commodities on the planet and why we
need to value relationships simultaneously as we do
money and time.
It’s no longer enough for businesses to be geared to respond quickly and effectively to rapid, incremental changes in
the business landscape. Instead, the future demands we also gear our businesses to respond effectively to gamechanging
disruptive events at lightning speed.
But the prevailing models and methods of thinking, problem-solving, and innovating have reached their limit, and
much like the limits of Newtonian Physics had to be breached by Quantum Physics to bring about step-change in
scientific and technological advancements, it’s going to take a new level of mind and consciousness to emerge at
leadership levels to tackle disruptive changes that lie ahead. While many businesses succumbed to the disruptive
forces caused by lockdowns, other businesses in the same industries pivoted successfully. They proved we’re far
more adaptive and responsive than we thought we were capable of, ushering in a new level of creative agility that
will serve as the baseline to build on.
Is Your Business ‘Disruption Ready’?
When do we consider the potential magnitude and diversity of disruptive challenges we are likely to face before the
end of this decade? How many businesses are geared right now to survive these game-changing events, let alone
succeed and thrive? If the trail of destruction left by lockdowns is any gauge, very few businesses or leaders are
‘disruption ready.’ Fortunately, while we might not be ready (yet), we most certainly are resilient, and we are
resourceful. The decisions we make as leaders from here will determine whether we sink or soar to new heights. If
we all take up the change-maker baton and learn to master Conscious Leadership skills, we will be the change we
wish to see and build a future we’re proud of!

Global youth mental health awareness (GYMHA), Australia
By Prof. Jude Ediae
I want to introduce you to Global youth mental health awareness limited. The Global Youth Mental Health Awareness
(GYMHA) is a global network of professionals whose VISION aims to make psychology a household term and advocate
for raising awareness and improving youth emotional and mental health outcomes.
The GYMHA aimed to empowers anyone, especially those youth experiencing psychological health problems, emotional
turmoil, adjustment issues, and concerns, with an endeavour to make psychology a household word without any stigma or
prejudice. The GLOBAL YOUTH MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS LIMITED is registered under the Australian
Securities and Investments Commission of the Corporations Act 2001. The company is a limited by guarantee Not-For-
Profit organization. GYMHA became a proud member of the United Nations Association of Australia Victoria branch on
the 28th of July 2019.
Upholding the GYMHA mission and goals
GYMA is elated to have onboard its members' beautiful people from
different parts of the world and various works of life. Without our esteemed
members, the GYMHA goals would have been unachievable. We have
always worked with the vision of raising awareness and improving the
emotional and mental outcomes of our youths. Have you noticed how
rampant depression is these days? Society these days seems to be filled with
many stressors posing a threat to people's mental health, particularly the
youths. Are you not excited to be part of this movement focused on youth
and child psychology and mental health? GYMHA has recognised that there
is a cankerworm, gradually eating deep into society; this cankerworm has
caused the lives of many youths in the form of mental health issues.
“To every little girl & boy who
dreams big: Yes, you can be
anything you want—even
Secretary and First Lady
Thus, together we have been working to tackle the youth mental health
issues and offset any stigma associated with individuals with mental health
problems. The good news is that we have been upholding our goals so far
and have stuck with our core values. We have reached out to people in
different ways, offering mental health support exactly at the point when
they need it. Thank you for being part of this cause. If you are not yet a

Mental Health support during COVID-19
The COVID-19 pandemic had hit hard on
nations of the world, and even now, we are still
not done with its impacts.
No doubt the pandemic has done lots of harm to
people's mental health and psychology,
particularly the youths who make up a
significant proportion of the workforce. To keep
you updated, UNICEF's recent poll showed that
the coronavirus pandemic is having a significant
impact on the mental health of adolescents and
young people in Latin America and the
Caribbean. Trends like this are what we are
People were forced to stay at home; thus, leaving
room for loneliness. Some were already battling
emotional and mental health issues even before
the onset of the lockdown measures. Now, the
lockdown only made things worse. Did we add
that many also lost their jobs to the pandemic?
Global Youth Mental Health Awareness
recognised the need to help public members get
past this difficult time. Hence, it reached out to
people offering mental health support.
GYMHA had its volunteers, members, and
advocates create mental health awareness,
helping the youths fight through mental issues.
Knowing that many youths with mental health
challenges can barely afford the treatments and
support they need, GYMHA came in to offer
these youths the support necessary to feel safe,
secure, and connected to their community and
One of GYMHA's biggest achievements during the pandemic was successfully engaging youths in
meaningful discussions through virtual hangouts, conferences, and social media live shows where youths
going through emotional turmoil and psychological health problems were empowered to take charge of
their lives. For instance, on September 4, 2020, GYMHA hosted a powerful online event titled, 'Unlocking
Youth Potential to Contain The Impact of COVID-19 in Africa'. The program had over 120 people in
attendance. How about the 'Free Global Virtual Summit on Stress Management Revolutions 2020' also
organised i2020 and held online? There couldn't have been a better way to teach the youths how to
manage and deal with stress, especially in such a time when the pandemic is wreaking havoc on people's
physical and mental health.
Check out GYMHA on social media for more information and video snippets of these events:
Facebook: / LinkedIn: / Instagram / GYMHA YouTube channel:
GYMHA also advocated a self-care plan for the youths. Irrespective of the pandemic, youths must live a
wholesome life by adopting all the pillars of self-care, which include physical, emotional, practical, mental,
and social self-care.
GYMHA is working with the youths to make a valued difference in their lives during the pandemic.

Moving forward in 2021: As we advance in 2021, GYMHA is set to
engage more professionals and youths in addressing issues affecting
youths' mental health. Plans and projects have been set to have people of
like minds (including youth activists, community leaders, health
professionals, and international leaders) discuss vital problems faced by
our youths. Just in January this year, GYMHA received a reimagining
health grant from VicHealth. The grant means funding to assist GYMHA
in providing youths (between the ages of 18-25) access to a secure and
anonymous SMS chat service, "Let's Sort This Out Together" (LSTOT) so
that they can develop meaningful social connections with others. This
provides a good tool and strategy for dealing with loneliness and isolation.
GYMHA also kick-started the year with a power-packed virtual summit

What is happening is slow and maybe not enough. The shift needs to begin with our acceptance that it is no longer about
equality and a preferred status because “Women” who matter and inspire and aspire to make a difference are not here to get
a special status. They are here for being themselves & to be recognized for who they are, to be celebrated & acknowledged
for their being the leader with the gifts and talents they are blessed with as they are “natural leaders” which they
themselves, their fellow women and men around the need to start accepting more & only allow them to coexist and fly to
achieve and live their dreams that they aspire to evolve into & positively impact humanity with their “compassionate
servant leadership” they stand for. The momentum needs to shift towards celebrating womanhood as a symbol of leadership
with concrete actions that leverages the natural leadership trait. SHE makes an impact as the:
Mom who selflessly cares and nurtures a new generation of future humans to become leaders.
A head of government who leads her people with exemplary success
through a crisis of war and the current COVID pandemic.
A CXO who leads her company fearlessly and successfully to profitable and stronger results,
and yet is also available to listen, be vulnerable and be the shoulder to cry
on for her partner, sibling, coworker, or friend.
This is the multifaceted Celebration of Womanhood that I admire, adore and respect in every woman. To make a fair point,
I am not choosing to be a feminist here. However, it is important to acknowledge that some men as partners who choose to
recognize this and accept the power of equal participation and co-existence as equal partners, the impact of these traits of a
woman only get up-leveled manifold by the supportive actions of fellow men. So a big shout out to such awesome men, and
I invite more of us to accept and make this change and shift a REAL one. I am blessed and grateful to have been
surrounded by some powerful, awesome women in my life, starting with my mom, who made me who I am to Be daring,
caring & honest, which are the core values I strive to live, as I evolve and grow into a better being each day myself.
My wife, my two amazing daughters, and a lovely granddaughter allow me to celebrate womanhood each day and each
moment as they all continue to surprise me with what they show up with as their “unseen & unsaid” potential to impact and
make a difference. As I close this piece, the idea here is to bring about what many of us know, and some of us choose to
ignore or overlook. I have also raised a few open questions to ponder about and express how best we can be part of the
solution and bring about the change to evolve and make a meaningful impact. JE
This is a journey, and we all are part of it
together as co-creators of a better social
framework where biases and isms move
away, and abilities, gifts, talents can be
the means to celebrate success and
growth and form the basis; of real
Either way, the important point is that we
need to ponder what can be done to
hasten the speed of change to shift
celebrating womanhood into meaningful,
sustainable norms that make us a
balanced and just social framework
where equality is not why women need to
grow. Still, for the fact, they are natural
leaders, and we need to allow and support
each other to get better leadership for the
betterment of the human race over the
next few decades faster than ever.
I sign off by saying kudos to women who
aspire & inspire by their natural abilities
and gifts, with a shout out to all those
men who stand with them as partners
who accept them for who they are. An
invitation for us all together to make this
celebration a reality faster and stronger
for the good of the human race and future
That is when we will truly celebrate
womanhood in leadership slowly but

physical wellbeing. Health is our wealth, that’s for
I want to give my voice and face to represent all those
women and girls who have faced violence in their lives,
and I call us ‘Survivors’. I want to empower women
and girls who are voiceless, powerless, scared, and
ashamed to talk about it. Terrific actions of violence
should never be taboo or shameful for the victims,
whether physical or mental.
Regarding the latest UN report, every 3rd woman has
faced violence, and many cases remain hidden.
Unfortunately, due to traumatic events, experiences of
violence in any form are still shameful for many
victims. I truly understand it, as it took me nearly 20
years to be strong enough to open up and unlock
traumatic memory attacks as from my own life
experience, I know the journey well. People who have
experienced traumatic events are highly resilient and
develop appropriate coping strategies mostly by
themselves. Like me, I haven’t shown my pain to
others but have limited my life in different ways.
There are many short-term effects to mental health,
long term effects on mental and physical health. Not all
are considered negative. Some find creative, healthy
ways to manage strong effects generated by trauma, a
strong commitment to physical activities, or by creating
organizations to support survivors of traumas. Special
Thanks to US Presidential Service Center and
Herrington Publications Worldwide for the honour to be
a speaker and author to spread awareness of healthcare.
I’m so grateful that my voice matters.
Now I’m finally in the spot of reasons for my life work.
This time we go deep into my why. I have developed
my strong coping methods over the years, but it’s not
helping me to get rid of the heavy burden of traumatic
memory attacks as my experiences are severe. I have
faced death threats, child abduction threats; I’m a
victim of physical and mental violence. Also, I have
experienced sexual harassment like so many other
women during the years, including tracing; the list is
quite endless. It was time for a solution; it was time to
start living without fear, without self-created
boundaries. More flowers, more laughter, more dreams,
more courage, more love. As we all deserve to be happy
without heavy burdens from the past.
Traumatic memory attacks can come from sudden
situations in daily life, even I have strongly limited my
life, made it super safe in my small circle. I need to
spend time with my children, with my family. Also, my
days content much self-care to keep the traumatic
memories away from my mind. I need to have sports
activities; I need to feel, see, and smell nature. I need to
take care of my flowers; I need to bake, I need to paint.
I need to create and surround myself with beauty. All
these are my coping methods. I’m hyperactive, so much
that I thought I have ADHD. Therefore I went to
adultery ADHD tests. It seems my traumatic
experiences have caused my hyperactivity as a coping
It’s painful to stop and necessary as we need to face the
real reasons, take care of our pain, and unlock those
traumas. That’s the way towards happiness and healing,
improving overall wellbeing. What a feeling it is to
understand the reasons and the effects. To identify the
pain, as only identified pain can be treated.
Moreover, there is a significant connection between
trauma and chronic health conditions—common
physical disorders and symptoms. According to
research, sleep disturbances, gastrointestinal,
cardiovascular, neurological, musculoskeletal,
respiratory, and dermatological disorders can be found.
Therefore there’s a perfect match with an amazing
Finnish company in the medical field called Kipuwex.
Kipuwex’s vision is to become a world-leading
company in the pain management domain. What is
Kipuwex? Kipuwex's mission is to combat healthcare
inequality and help millions of people. Kipuwex is one
of the top IoMT innovations in the world for the
I became a fan of Kipuwex already before I was part
of their amazing team. I have always been a father’s
girl. Kipuwex, as its solution, is developed for
honouring the memory of CEO Mr. Marko Höynälä’s
passed father. His beloved father has been a driving
force for the new medical innovations, which will
change the world in the pain management domain.
As Christian, we are celebrating Easter now, the
Resurrection of Jesus Christ. After his crucifixion,
death, and burial, three days later, he arose from the
grave. The significance of Easter is Jesus Christ's
triumph over death. Easter also means changing
seasons, especially in Finland; days are coming
lighter. There’s light in the tunnel also when
we learn to manage the pain. Living happily does not
mean there won’t be pain. Pain is timeless; it has
always existed. Important is how we view the world
and view joy, victory, pain, and sorrow. It important is
to have faith and keep hopes up.
How we can strive for betterment, it’s about
curiosity. Dr. Diane Hamilton is an expert, so
grateful for the interviews hosted by Dr. Diane
Hamilton Take the Lead Radio Show, recently
facilitated by Mr. Marko Höynälä, CEO of
Kipuwex. Kipuwex was curious to innovate new
medical solutions to measure different physiological
parameters from the patient digitally, converting
them with an algorithm into pain data and providing
efficiently reliable measurements for healthcare
professionals and home users, which is vital to
assessing human well-being and disease
management. The master brain behind the
innovations is Mr Marko Höynälä, CEO of
Whether your pain or your heavy burden from life, it
can be identified and treated. Kipuwex’s mission is to
decrease the pain in the world by providing reliable
pain assessment at home and in hospitals regardless of
patients' age, gender and illness. Over the last 3+
years from its humble beginnings, Kipuwex is gamechanging
how the healthcare industry monitors and

innovative solutions we provide, position it on a
global front in the leading medical IoMT industry.
Kipuwex solution has an important role in
revolutionizing the Telehealth industry towards a
more Patient-centered-approach, tackling global
Kipuwex is the only objective pain measuring device in
today's market. No one has developed an objective pain
measurement device. Also, children are therefore
suffering from pain-related problems like life-Long
Trauma, Disorder in Development, and Chronic Pain.
Kipuwex is a small wireless IoT device that
continuously measures different physiological
parameters from the patient digitally, converting them
with an algorithm into pain data and provides efficiently
reliable measurements for healthcare professionals and
home users. Especially now during a global pandemic,
this kind of solutions the world needs. There’s no need
to be next to the patient at the hospital, which is
decreasing infections between nurses and patients.
Regarding the latest reports, over 30-million people have
been infected with covid-19, over 1 million people have
lost their lives.
I can proudly recommend also PainCARER mobile
application, as I have been using it as a surgery patient.
PainCARER mobile application is another innovative
healthcare solution from the Kipuwex company. PainCARER
mobile application for pain monitoring and self-assessment.
Developed in co-operation with Oulu University Hospital as a
part of the In-demand program. Pain care is an easy-to-use and
reliable way to record and evaluate chronic pain experiences
to manage your pain experience. PainCARER mobile
application is available in Google Play and Apple Stores.
When there’s less pain in individuals' lives, it leads to personal
happiness and the betterment of the future. Moreover, personal
happiness leads to a strong culture in different sectors by
providing peace and love.

different from Leadership in any other era, one
must understand and become familiar with this
technology knowing its benefits and uses and
avoiding bad use of it, in addition, to lead in the
era of Coronavirus and after it and lead in the
case of work from a different distance also.
Twenty-first-century technology is considered
one of the technologies that approach the
problems of individuals, society, countries, and
the world as a whole. By activating this
technology in the world, it can solve poverty,
diseases, epidemics, violence, management and
leadership. By activating it, the elderly and
people with special needs can be helped and
allowed women like men in all fields and build a
generation of children. At a high level of
education and health, and by activating them in
the year 2030, the seventeen sustainable
development goals can be achieved all over the
It is necessary to make sure this time that the
technological gap between countries as a whole
and between women and men between
generations of leaders in the world as a whole is
reduced, and that no one is left behind in this
technological revolution, as happened before
with the existence of technological gaps.
Cloud of Everything project focuses on
spreading awareness of the benefits of this
technology in all areas, such as education,
health, energy, and focusing on Aviation for my
work and taking Aviation from harsh
conditions. By activating this technology in
aviation a challenge. With its success, we ensure
the success of activating this technology because
the aviation environment is dynamic. It is highspeed,
very dynamic and includes all fields,
including education, health, energy, etc.
We hope that the world as a whole will be delivered
to future generations in a better way than it is now in
education, health and all fields as a whole. The
opportunity is still available for the current
generation to do that for future generations.
The Cloud of Everything project started in 2013.
Since its inception until now, updates on this are
constantly being published in international journals,
as well as in international books and social media, in
addition to discussing this in all international forums
on the continent of Africa, Asia, America, Europe,
and examples from China, Russia and America.
I have been exposed to many challenges and
material, moral and temporal losses that affect my
family. Still, we thank God Almighty for the
continuation of my efforts in this project until its
date. The evidence is my presence today in April
2021 at the United Nations Information Summit to
present some project points in addition to all
international forums and my nomination To head
many scientific organizations and peace
organizations, an ambassador of goodwill, awards
for the best researcher, awards for thought, awards
for achievement, excellence in education, peace
books, and so on.
We hope to support this COE project and activate
the scope of its uses to include all members of society
and all countries globally as a whole in 2030, that is,
after 9 years of its date, and to allocate a budget for
it. Change lies in changing its exchange aspects by
stopping wars in the world, allocating what is spent
on wars in this technology, and activating the laws
necessary to set restrictions For use in causes of
peace and progress, not reasons for war and
The world is facing a fierce virus, COVID 19, since
last year that caused disease and death of many
people worldwide, stopping the movement of air
traffic and transportation, paralyzing movement as a
whole and losses in the economy in the entire world.
With the length of time and the absence of a vaccine
to date and the attempt to balance between the
health of individuals and the economy, most
countries turned to the idea of coexistence with the
virus; that is, life continues. With the precautions for
infection from the disease and coexistence with it and
the life in the continuity of the presence of the virus
and its success, two essential factors must be
activated. The first basic factor is the new technology
for the principle of prevention, better than the
treatment represented in the cloud of things from the
Internet of things, cloud computing, big data,
Artificial intelligence and 5G, the fifth generation of
The second key factor is the emotional intelligence of
its importance in this difficult period for self-control
and the reduction of material and moral losses in
these difficult moments when humanity as a whole
pass both material and moral losses together. We
need it in every home, every company, every
community, every country, and the entire world as a
whole, with different exposure to material and moral
In the era of COVID 19, the best solution to get out
of the current crisis is to use both cloud-of-things
technology CLOUT to prevent disease by identifying
the sufferer to avoid and using emotional intelligence
EQ to get out of the crisis.
In education, 4 axes are science, engineering,
technology, and Math. A fifth axis, medicine, must
be added, so STEMM should replace stem by adding
the medicine to it.
Why EQ & CLOUT in The Technology of twenty-first-century Era
EQ Emotional intelligence is twice as
important as other skills in determining
outstanding leadership. By managing
your emotions and relating well to
others, you can achieve higher levels of
influence as well as personal well-being.
How to use those feelings more
productively to make stronger decisions,
overcome negative thoughts, control
yourself in volatile situations, or
understand others when they act in a
way that surprises or angers you.
Identifying and managing your own
emotions and react to tough situations
like COVID 19 with resilience, respond
to stress productively and to Persuade
and to influence others.
From a scientific standpoint, emotional
intelligence is the ability to accurately
perceive your own and others’ emotions,
understand the signals that emotions
send about relationships, and manage
your own and others’ emotions.
Great leaders move us-they inspire,
motivate, and energize us; you can be a
successful leader without much
emotional intelligence if you’re
fortunate. You’ve got everything else
going for you, BUT THIS IS NOT THE
Right TIME and The Right situation,
SEE COVID 19 OUTBREAK.
Behind every ordeal Crisis, a grant And
Activation of a Cloud of things clout and
emotional intelligent EQ in the entire
world could be the Grant of COVID 19
Some important feature of Leaders is Resilient,
Decisive, Agile, and Ambitious. – Communicators,
Creative problem-solvers, Passion for purpose, Ability
to think big. – Brave, Generous. But in COVID 19
ERA, Leaders should have the Mentality of Abundance,
not the Mentality of Scarcity.
The mentality of abundance entrepreneurs and the
mentality of scarcity individuals are prevalent concepts
that may change our lives for the better.
(The Abundance Thinking Mindset)
It is to believe that everyone has enough opportunities
and good enough for everyone in this world.
You do not need to lose anyone or harm anyone until
you gain ... it is good enough for everyone.
Scarcity & Scarcity
It is to believe that good and opportunity are limited
(the bite is one to either eat you or someone else to
eat it); there must be one losing ... the whole life is a
struggle and a competition.
The question: Which mentality can make you live in
peace, tranquillity and peace?
(The mentality of abundance for sure) Goodness
exists for everyone.
Who thinks of a scarcity mindset:
They are afraid that others will succeed; they are
afraid to praise others.
He does not share information or knowledge because
he thinks that he is a loser if someone succeeds.
Afraid that people know how he succeeded and how
he developed, people are afraid to take his place ...
Who is thinking of the mentality of abundance:
You find it calm and calm. - The successes of others
do not threaten him. Rather, he praises them and
praises them; People share their experiences,
knowledge and information.
Some people think of the "abundance" mentality,
and you see everything around it many and many,
and others have been occupied by "scarcity". You
find them in constant anxiety and tension ...
- Leaders who do not change after the change will
- Leaders who change after a change will survive.
- Leaders who change with change will succeed.
- Leaders who change the change will lead.

“ It’s Normal; these things happen, forget it,” this advice still haunts me
and makes me panic more than the scary incident that happened to me.
How can you tell me to be normal? When my body and my mind both are
suffering till now? The scars are still visible, both physically and mentally?
Coming out and saying this is one of the hardest things I've ever done. I'm
known to be a strong person adorning many degrees, positions in human
rights, media…who never thought this could happen to me?. How could I
be the victim? I occasionally drink alcohol, yes. I love spending my free
time chilling at the local places with my friends and watching movies. I
wear dresses and have male friends. I'm like any other regular woman you
would meet. I could never be a victim. Wrong, totally wrong! I had a rough
time with my husband for years and was really heading towards a breakup,
and I was a mess. That was when "He" happened. Yes, “HE” as I
thought someone I knew, someone I trusted, but someone who is now
nameless to me because I genuinely can't comprehend his identity, but still
I had trust issues and thought I couldn't trust anyone, and I found him
always there. I began to trust him, to depend on him, and to feel so safe
with him. I used to lay my head on his chest with that cross pendant,
thought of it as assuring as Lord Jesus, and calm down in my worst
moments. He was my closest friend and confidante. As our friendship
grew, so did my closeness to him. Whether to call it romance or what, but
sooner or later, a physical relationship took off. I truly wasn't romantically
interested but also did not consider it a hook-up. I believed I had far too
deep an emotional connection with him for that. We had several fights and
several long talks. Things improved.
THE DOMINO EFFECT-
CARRY THE WEIGHT
He was perfect. He was that guy who always seemed "too good." He was, and still
is, perceived as that proper man with the classic new Indian morals of being a
good man, and never dating girls, having one of the highest positions in
professional, social circles, interacting with the mighty! He was the poster man for
"decency." He never did an immoral thing in life…or so everyone thought.
After few months, one day, several weeks later, around mid-March, he invited me
to attend a high-profile party hosted by who is who of international repute, and
the incident after shattered his “the man with the perfect image and the apparent
undying respect for women." Writing it out makes it sound so dramatic. The thing
is, it was so real when it did happen and yet, so unreal. The party was attended by
powerful men and women from the international arena. I was feeling so happy
and proud among such an elite crowd and all the more happy, safe, and secure
with my man next to me” attitude.
As the party progressed and we were all sitting around the table with his male
friends and having food, I was so happy that we enjoyed it. He was so proud and
happy to introduce me to all, and I was the cynosure of all eyes as being so well
educated, having so many positions and certificates… It all started when, I really
don’t remember, he kept taking me out of the group and smoking vigorously. I
didn’t find anything abnormal, but when he started sitting at another table away
from us all, I realised something is not right.
I had finished having my food and asked him whether we can go back home as it
was getting late. He started behaving abnormally and was acting as though he is
not in his senses. I never saw him drinking much, even though he claims he did!!!
As his other friends were going back, I told them I feel he is not normal and
whether they can drop him back home. They all were not so keen, and one even
said that it's your responsibility to drop him home. Even though I kept asking all
to help me take him home, no one cared. Instead, another friend of his even
advised that he is a very good person and I better stay back and drop him home.
How nice of them. A woman or a fellow human being is asking for help and see
how even mighty, educated, and supposed to be highly responsible group reacts??
I was really getting nervous and somehow booked a cab and was
requesting him to go back home. He got up and took the flower vase and
threw it on the floor. As a well-known, famous five-star hotel and the
other people from the party were also watching, I felt humiliated. Some
people got so angry with his actions that they were videoing it. I kept
trying to take him to the cab, and everyone watched the drama, and no
one came forward to help. He became angry and was pushing me aside.
Somehow I managed to get him inside the cab.
The horror was to start, though!!! Inside the car, he started kissing me
so aggressively that he bit my lips, and I was bleeding. He started pulling
my hair and striking me. The cab driver got so scared hearing my cries,
he stopped the car and asked me to call the police and leave him there
and go. I could not do anything, and the cab driver was shouting at him
and trying to stop him. I was brutally beaten again and again, and seeing
that - the cab driver stopped the car. He was equally terrified as me as
this guy was hitting the car window and asking me to get inside.
By then, the passers-by started crowding the car. As he is one of the
well-known people in the National and International arena and
representing the position of the highest repute, I didn’t want anyone to
see us. People were videoing the incident on phones, and I was requesting
them, actually pleading not to! One young man from the crowd came
forward and spoke to him and the cab driver and somehow made him sit
inside the car and asked us to go back home soon. The cab driver was
hesitant, and he asked me to get inside the car and leave him there. I
didn't want to do that, fearing something may happen; I don’t know. I
Somehow we started heading towards his house. His friends kept on
calling to see whether we reached home. He got so angry and took the
phone from me and threw it out of the car!!! He got angry when I
stopped the car to take it. He pulled my hair and started striking me. I
was screaming in pain. At this point, I began to feel frightened and fight
back. I attempted to push him off and tried to speak. I remember
thinking he was strong and being genuinely scared. I told him to let go of
me because he was hurting me. I was horrified, and I remember just
sinking to the seat of the car and curling up, begging him to stop. He
Closed windows contained my screams! I still wake up in the mid of the night thinking of the
same! It was then that the cab guy stopped the car and tied his hands with his towel, and
made him sit next to him in the front seat. As we saw a police van standing in the distance, the
cab guy threatened him; he will call the police. This worked, and he became slightly calm. The
cab driver was driving so fast, and in minutes we reached his home and somehow made him
get out of the car, and we left.
While going back, the cab driver asked me whether he was my husband or am I going to my
mom’s place…He was asking me why I didn’t leave him there and go. He also stopped at the
medical shop and got me medicines as I was bleeding from my lips, tongue and totally bruised.
I didn’t answer anything as I was in total shock and in a state of complete exhaustion.
I locked myself up in the room after reaching home and couldn't even get myself to cry. His
friend was messaging me, and I just messaged him everything that happened, and if he had
helped me, this could have been avoided. He apologised and really expressed his concern.
That night I messaged his friends and informed them about the incident and wanted them
never to abandon a woman asking for help. I got mixed responses. Most of them were
supportive, and one guy even refused to acknowledge my call to this date as though it’s my
fault. Another was advising me that I could be in touch with the elite group due to him, and I
should forget it. My mind didn't want to accept it.
He called me as if nothing had happened in the morning, and when I asked about the incident,
he was acting like he doesn’t remember anything. But as his phone was broken last night due
to the scuffle we had, and when I asked about that, he could not hide further and still was
trying to act he was drunk and didn’t remember what happened, blah, blah… But I was not
willing to forget it. He then started apologising unapologetically, persuading me to forget it
and saying I have this habit of exaggerating… if we were married and living together, I would
have just forgotten the same. That was alarming!!! He was trying to tell me that it's normal
among couples, and I am just exaggerating!!! I blocked his number and just shut myself off
from the world. Weeks and weeks full of self-contemplation, blaming and doubting myself,
and feeling alone and trapped went by.
He made his other female friends call me and try to make things look normal, and I sent my
bruised face and blood-clotted lips pictures to them, and they were astonished!!! I asked them
will they be able to forget these? I was living a nightmare. He kept trying to reach out to me
not to apologise but to compromise, fearing backlash from me that I may approach law
After many months, repeated counseling sessions, and wonderful friends' support, I slowly
realised that what had happened was not my fault. I am still in denial that my best friend, my
safe place, was actually where I'd been harmed. My trust was doomed forever again.
He compelled me to meet him along with
his friend and was cutting the cake,
celebrating my birthday (not genuinely
keen to celebrate my birthday), but keen
to make sure I am not going to the law
enforcement agencies or complain to his
boss, so his job will be safe… and was
pressing on the need for me to forget it
and trying to portray everything was
fine!!! His friend trying to assure that
“he is a very nice person” was just not
okay with me! Later I found all this
drama was because someone at the party
had video recorded the same and had
emailed his boss, and he wants this “all is
fine” moment with me to showcase to his
boss as fear of losing his job!!! There is
no sign of apology and instead sublimely
threatening me with dire consequences if
I pressed any charges against him!!! It
was all coverup, and I am sure he will
repeat the same with many women and
get away with it!!!
Writing from my heart; because this was
one of the most unexpected and
traumatising things to happen to me. I
was scared because I know it can be
twisted to where I am the one to blame.
But I think I have a moral right to tell all
women out there that this Domino effect
may cause many women to get affected in
the same manner. Violence against
women is treated unapologetically, and
women have been compelled to keep
quiet, citing pressure from society and
It’s become common among couples that
fearing lifelong trials from a maledominated
society and character
assassination; women cover up the
bruises inside long dresses! Don’t worry,
Let’s speak out to reach out.
Strengthening our Nation’s Commitment to Preventing
and Responding to Gender-Based Violence
APRIL 02, 2021
By Rosie Hidalgo and Libby Washburn
Women’s History Month has provided an opportunity for
us to shine a light on so many courageous women who
have made valuable contributions while overcoming
significant barriers and challenges. This is certainly the
case for many survivors of domestic violence and sexual
assault, whose voices, resilience, leadership, and
dedication have paved the way for legal reforms and the
creation of services to prevent and respond to genderbased
violence. It is that leadership and activism, and
the willingness of survivors to tell their stories, that led
President Biden to write and champion the passage of
the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) as a senator in
1994. Since then, he has led efforts to ensure that
Congress passed legislation renewing and strengthening
VAWA three times with bipartisan support: in 2000,
2005, and in his capacity as Vice President in 2013. Each
reauthorization of VAWA has improved the legislation
by expanding access to safety, services, and support for
all victims and survivors. As we mark Sexual Assault
Awareness Month each April, we have an opportunity to
focus on important ways to enhance prevention efforts
and improve the response to sexual assault, including
for survivors from historically marginalized
communities who face additional barriers to safety and

Philanthropists Taiwo and Mandy Olowu
PHILANTHROPY - LEADING FROM THE FRONT!
Apart from being two love birds, Taiwo and Mandy Olowu are passionate philanthropists and have been
involved in humanitarian work for upward of 30 years. After retiring from the corporate world of
banking, the couple decided to pursue more vigorously their shared passion in doing good, helping the
poor, the underprivileged, the disabled, and advocating for better living conditions for people around the
globe, especially vulnerable children and women.
They consequently co-founded and registered a non-profit and non-governmental charity designated as
HOPE AMBASSADORS AND CHILDCARE ORGANISATION (Hope Ambassadors) in 2012.
Doing so brings to the fore and the public glare all they have been doing informally for several decades.
It is their fervent conviction that by going public, they will motivate and encourage many people to
either venture into philanthropy or team up with them or others to volunteer, collaborate, support, or
donate to humanitarian causes. It is undoubtedly true that the need and demand for humanitarian help
are enormous and growing every day, especially with recurring vicissitudes in the world economy.
The frequencies and occurrences of natural disasters such as hurricanes, flooding, tsunamis, earthquakes
in the last few decades juxtaposed by diseases such as epidemic and pandemic (Ebola, SARS and now
Covid-19) have adversely affected the living conditions of people. Furthermore, man-induced incidences
such as civil strives, wars and corruption have also further aggravated refugees situations in places like
Syria, Yemen, Congo DCR, Somalia, South Sudan, Afghanistan and several other trouble spots in the
world. Many Syrian refugees, especially children we saw the last time we were on vacation in Istanbul,
Turkey, was really heartbreaking. Nothing prepares one for the grave and complex humanitarian crises
that forced families into destitution, homelessness, helplessness and hopelessness. Hope Ambassadors is
here to live to its mantra of 'reviving the hope in hope'.
Therefore, it is not surprising that 'Hope Ambassadors' is extending its frontiers and establishing
membership across borders, starting with Pakistan, India, Bangladesh, all in Asia, and other parts of
Africa and the UAE and other Gulf countries. Respected and highly qualified Continental Chairpersons
have been appointed with the mandate to fly the flag of Hope Ambassadors and expand its tentacles
within their territories. Hitherto, Hope Ambassadors has formulated formidable alliances and
partnerships across international boundaries with reputable International Foundations. The major one is
with the Global Goodwill Ambassadors, an organization with over 15,000 members spread over 200
countries. They have and still are extending massive moral and institutional support to Hope
Ambassadors, and the relationship has been of immense mutual benefits.
Hope Ambassadors, albeit a self-financed body that has not received any financial grant or strong
institutional support, has emerged as a frontline philanthropic organisation and is making remarkable
impacts in Nigeria and around the globe. Hope Ambassadors have, over the years, gradually shifted its
paradigm from 'giving people fish' to 'teaching people how to fish.' The emphasis is now gravitating
towards a combination of hunger and poverty alleviation plus empowerment schemes. This is because
it is inconceivable for you to feed the destitute perpetually but more strategically if you feed them in
the short term and empower them through skill acquisition, education, and entrepreneurship
development. That way, they will be able to fend and cater for their families in the long run. So while
we still undertake some of our programmes such as "Hunger Burst," where we intervene directly by
distributing cooked food and food materials, medication, and essential materials as palliatives, we are
more focused on doing what accords recipients more human dignity and respect.
Consequently, we provide skill acquisition, entrepreneurial training, bursary, and scholarships for
indigent learners and students. Our empowerment programme targets widows, homeless, unemployed
people, retired but not tired, pensioners. We discovered that many people lost their jobs or are forced
into early retirements while still strong and healthy and capable of contributing to the economy.
We have established Hope Ambassadors Academy under the leadership of Dr. Shauli Mukherjee, an
erudite educationist and Thought Leader. The Academy is charged with the responsibility of grooming
Interns and Volunteers for future roles in philanthropy.
We believe we can do more with the right support, as all we have accomplished so far has been
internally generated. Hope Ambassador's major constraint is finding and getting funds from the
appropriate organisations to expand our scope and impact. We have the right structure and people and
need the requisite resources and collaborations to support and extend all that we do.
We need individuals and corporate organisation to come to our aid as part of their CSR to contribute to
our 'Covid Prevention Support Scheme' to fund Handwash Stations and Facemasks in schools.
Mandy and I are gratefully strong members and directors of Global Goodwill Ambassadors and
contributing our humble quotas to making the organization stronger and relevant within our
jurisdiction and beyond.

time to produce the show for professional and
emerging models and designers. The team
has delivered two Sold Out shows in Sofitel,
2019, and Stanford Plaza, 2020. With every
event produced, RF pledges that a portion of
the funds raised will go to a charity. This
year Ravishing Fashionistas Fashion Show

models were requested to walk solo and then in a group. This was an
opportunity to mark their entry into the fashion industry. Each model
was judged on their confidence, personality, walk and posture. Out of
100 models, 30 models will move to the next stage of rehearsals and
preparation for the major event.
In a world where misogyny and sexism still
exist, where women are put to shame for
various reasons, body types are prevalent
characteristics used to criticise a woman.
“Too thin”, “too fat”, “too pale”, “too tan”,
“too mature”, “too casual”, “too wrinkly” are
the words that we hear quite often.
Ravishing Fashionistas Team is encouraging
everyone to fight this prejudice and advocate
positive body image for all women. Their
message to the community is to confidently
embrace their beauty and body irrespective of
their age, body type, background, skin colour
or culture. Every woman has a story and a

HH. What was the inspiration behind
MC: My mother! I took care of her for the
last 10 years of her life before losing her battle
with Diabetes. During that time, it was a
struggle to keep up with her medical records,
numerous prescriptions, surgeries,
amputations, dialysis, physical therapy, and
more. I had to keep a spreadsheet of all the
information as it became difficult to maintain
otherwise. As a mother juggling a full-time
career, it was stressful as any communication
error with her medical professionals could
have been fatal for her. I knew there had to be
a better way, and years later, I designed the
HH. As a female leader, what has been the
most significant barrier in your career?
MC: Myself! First, while we have come a long
way since I started my career, IT is still a field
largely dominated by our brethren. Often, it
was difficult to get a seat at the table, and
when I pulled up my own chair, it was equally
difficult to have a voice in the conversation. I
wish I would have learned early on to allow
what I call 'graceful boldness' to prevail rather
than thinking I needed to suit up with a cloak
of armour. Once I figured that out through
great mentors and female leaders sharing many
of the same struggles,
HH. What personal sacrifices have you made in your
MC: It was always my dream since I was a child to travel
and work worldwide. I became a single mom when my
children were 6 and 3, and my mother was living with
me at the time. My career took off, and I started to travel
internationally when my mother suffered a massive heart
attack. I put my international work on hold to take care
of my family and focused on the health and well-being of
my children and my mother. As God would have it, 10
years later, I got the opportunity to start traveling again,
and in the last 10 years, I've traveled to roughly 50
countries around the world and lived in 7. What's meant
for you will be yours if you keep the dream alive and
work towards your goals.
HH. What is your why?
MC: My personal why, Christ. He died so that I may
have life and have it more abundantly. God made me
with a specific purpose in mind; I aim to live that
purpose and give to the world everything I'm supposed to
give before it's my time to go. I want to help save lives,
alleviate poverty, and restore hope, all while earning the
trust of those I serve.
HH. Could you name a woman who’s
inspired you the most?
MC: That's such a difficult task, to only name
one. Some so many incredible women are the
reason I am where I am today. If I only have
one, it would have to be my mother. She was a
nurse before she adopted me. The story goes,
when I was 5 years old, I asked her to stop
working so I wouldn't have to stay with my
grandparents every day; apparently, I didn't. I
wouldn't say I liked though I do not remember
those days. While my mother was a tough
disciplinarian, there was nothing she wouldn't
do to help others. She was a resilient woman
of grace, empathy, compassion, strength,
charity, and faith. Her rock was the Blessed
Mother Mary. I never saw her go to sleep
before saying her rosary on her knees every
night. She fought through many years of pain
suffering from diabetes, and I hardly ever
heard her complain about the pain. I never saw
her take a sick day during her career. And she
gave up nursing to take a job as a cook at the
school my brother, and I attended to be at
home with us when we were not in school.
More than anything, her servant heart, and
strong faith have inspired me to this day.
HH. How do we move forward when everyone is
telling us our idea won't work?
MC: Not everyone will see your vision. We have to
know that our idea is what we are supposed to be
chasing. How do we know that? It's hard to think of
anything else. The hours don't matter; the chatter
won't matter! If that fire is burning deep inside you
and your passion for solving a particular problem fuels
you when you do not know how to take another step,
keep moving forward. The experience will stretch you,
strengthen you and surprise you when you come out
the other end of it. Have the resolve to know it's the
journey that matters most, and regardless of the
outcome, you will have gained invaluable knowledge,
wisdom, and a network along the way that will help
propel you to the next level. If you fail, be grateful
because I promise you another idea will have been
born through the process, so get busy with it and have
no regrets. If any of the greats had given up after their
idea didn't come to fruition, we wouldn't have half the
innovations we now take for granted, from organ
transplants to self-driving cars. Trust the process,
follow your passion, and live your truth. It's not what
others say to you; it's what you say to you that matter
HH. Where do you see yourself in the future?
MC: Near future, leading the first company to solve
the challenge of having one comprehensive view for
all our health information. It's time; join us on the
journey! Long term future, building regenerative cities
in underserved parts of the world to help people live
their highest potential through our ISeeU non-profit
