Yoga: 9 Changes that Completely Transformed Me

It’s not improving but unfolding that makes us grow.  We are fine the way we are, and it makes me uncomfortable when someone tries to tell me something that will “make” me better.  Our own process is precious, unique, special, and nobody knows what the next best step is, not even us.

10 Reasons I Must Be The Next CEO Of Twitter: Vale!

Growing up in Buenos Aires I had dreams of being an actress and winning an Oscar. I gave speeches of gratitude to the Academy in the only bathroom we had for our family of five.  The soap was my microphone, the mirror my audience. My hair was beautiful.

jetblue-mint-logoI am sitting on a wide comfy leather chair that will take me from JFK to Los Angeles, a crew member offers me iced-water with a bit of honey and a mint leaf…

Would you like vodka with it? She asks.
