Monika, also known as RAD Monika, is an entrepreneur, speaker and author. She describes herself as a normal person with normal talents and background.
However, she was able to achieve the seemingly impossible: setting as the first female in history a world record by cycling one of the toughest cycling challenges in the world.
She used three principles that she applied successfully for her cycling challenges and beyond when she moved to different countries, received three full scholarships, attended the world’s best university program, worked for a prestigious consulting firm and even wrote her first book in five weeks.
The three principles form her RAD philosophy which amplifies your natural strengths, defines a clear action plan and breaks mental barriers to successfully achieve your goals, no matter in what part of your life.
