But as a young woman this gift got her into trouble and led her to feeling misunderstood and alone. So, she chose to hide her special gift and instead, used her financial education to create a successful international company focused on wealth generation for those pursuing cross border living. But as the years passed something happened and she bravely started to look for ways to utilize her hidden gift. And in this, a path to greatness began to unfold. It is my pleasure to introduce you to Jennifer Patterson.

Meet Mina Shah

This woman was envied and admired as she was the only female speaker with one of the world’s greatest male trainers. But people see what they want to see, including ourselves. Those who envied her didn’t know that the path she had traveled to get to this point was marred by years of violence, sexual abuse and abandonment. Nor did they know about the eating disorder she had overcome as a young woman. But the old saying “what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger” began to define her life. And from a place of strength she decided to leave her dream position and create her own place of impact. And this is when her true path to greatness began. It is my pleasure to introduce you to Mina Shah.

It is my pleasure to introduce you to Kimberly Haynes.
