About creating your own business


I have always admired entrepreneurs: rebels, creators, enthusiasts. For me they were celestials. I was ready to listen to them for hours - how they started the business, how they decided, what they faced. Each story was the story of a hero. I also wanted to be a hero, to create, to be useful. TOPIC: 3 mistakes, because of which plans for the coming year often do not come true First there was a training company, then a tourist company, then a tent camp, then again tourism. The current business emerged at the intersection of tourism and consulting: we organize trips to seminars with the coolest speakers, for example, Tony Robbins, as well as business excursions to great companies: Zappos, Apple, TripAdviser, etc. We help the strong to be even stronger.

About "male" and "female" business


I would not divide the business into "male" and "female". I know women who do an excellent job in the construction business, and men who develop beauty salons. And everyone is quite successful.

Women's leadership is communication, love for clients, atmosphere in a team, disclosure of talents and potential, flexibility, intuition. And now there is a very great need in the world for women's leadership. Both men and women can manifest it.

About "women's choice"


Three steps to start your own business and the main principles in business

  • Train the discipline to learn how to achieve "long goals"

  • A lot, often, exclusively communicate with entrepreneurs. Among those who live in business, it will be impossible not to create their own business, too.

Business principles:

  • Make your team happy
  • Surprise and delight customers
  • Be better today than yesterday

About a dream

I want us, as humanity, to learn, finally, to resolve issues in a civilized way, and not by force and weapon.
