For me, life is a journey and in this blog I discuss the tools, beliefs and resources that I have used to make that journey purposeful, peaceful, joyous and prosperous. My journey has been amazing and at times very challenging.
As a professional storyteller, I understand the power of story. To share a story is to offer others an opportunity to not only be a witness to your experience but enable them to examine their own journey.

Do you have your "Elevator Speech" on the ready, to be delivered at any minute?
An elevator speech is a short, concise statement of who you are, and what you want. If you have a business, your elevator speech would include what your product or service is and what value it has to your customers. You should be able to deliver your speech in the time it takes to ride an elevator (estimated between 30 seconds and two minutes).
Here is my speech, "I am TAHIRA, a storyteller. My mission is to use story to inspire and empower others to think critically, choice wisely, and believe fervently in their ability to succeed."
Luck is defined as opportunity that meets preparation. If the person who could deliver all your dreams, got on an elevator with you and you had that elevator ride to deliver that speech. Could you do it? What would you say?
