What were your initial years of growing up like? Tell us about your life before starting your corporate journey/venture/initiative.
I was born in Portugal where I lived until my twenties. While studying psychology in college, I went as an exchange student to England, and finished my B.Sc. there. After, I went to Salamanca, Spain, where I completed a Master’s program. My career was in academia, studying, researching, and practicing in the Psychology field. In 2010 already living here in the US, I became a coach owning my own business.
Every industry that is now a large-scale, top-notch business once started as a small idea in the minds of entrepreneurs. What was that idea or motivation that made you start your business /initiative? What motivated you within to say YES, go for it!”
It was all about how we could create a bigger positive impact in the world. I was always about expanding possibilities to myself and others, and now I’m on a mission to support leaders and organizations increase their impact and results while preventing burnout, being overwhelmed or overextended.
Tell us something about your initiative or current role. What is it about, and what impact are you trying to make?
In my small practice, I run my podcast, the MINDSET ZONE, which is one of the top 1% of all podcasts globally. This generated visibility for myself and my amazing guests. I also advise leaders and their organizations on how to amplify their impact while creating a culture of work sustainability.
