How to pursue those goals that scare us
I had my good share on bold decisions and pushing limits from moving to the USA, getting a full scholarship into Georgetown and later having to make the tough decision to leave a World Bank career to see if I could become a professional cyclist. Fastforward, I moved to the other side of the world with no plan but a one-hotel night stay and a six-week car rental. My mission? To find my purpose in life. One year later I set a seemingly impossible record.
Every success outwits many doubts, obstacles and failures. Most people don’t talk about it. I do.
How to change, grow, excel and succeed on any challenge, that is what I share in my book and talks.

I am so glad we invited Monika to do a workshop for our leasing teams. Her presentation and energy was fabulous! She motivated, encouraged and assisted our teams in building their confidence to achieve their goals. She provided them with the invaluable tools to overcome failures. In our industry, we deal with people from all walks of life – she was able to relate her workshop to our industry and target the areas that would be most beneficial in their professional and personal lives. I would highly recommend Monika’s workshop!

At a time in life when not much is certain, Monika has helped me to choose a path that will help me to continue my passion for knowledge while focusing on my personal happiness after college. With her insight and experiences, she has inspired me to achieve my goals and make that leap that I was previously too scared to do. She is quite enthusiastic and encouraging. I highly recommend meeting with Monika if you are in need of some motivation and expertise!
