How lucky that we can learn from inspiring people on the other side of the world in real time. Books have always been a gateway to new ways of thinking and being but thanks to YouTube and social media platforms we now not only get up-to-date information and ideas but also more access to the people behind them.
Here are my 5 most influential mentors of 2019:
I relate so much to Marie as she is a multi-passionate entrepreneur who champions personal growth and ethical business. Her YouTube channel Marie TV is full of insightful interviews and entertaining content for anyone wanting to build a life they love.
“Everything is figureoutable.”
“Start before you’re ready.”
“Clarity comes from engagement, not thought.”
Eckhart articulates huge life-changing ideas and also wisdom in responding to the smallest of daily occurrences. His calm and humorous way of explaining such profound concepts such as oneness and presence makes them engaging and accessible to all.

“It is not uncommon for people to spend their whole lives waiting to start living.”

I found Jen through her book “You are a badass”, lent to me by a friend. Her no-nonsense writing style and delivery of truth and accountability makes her books awesome reads and the kick up the butt I sometimes need to get things done.

“If you’re serious about changing your life, you’ll find a way. If you’re not, you’ll find an excuse.”
“There isn’t a single person on this planet who’s entitled to treat you like shit.”

“Today having power means knowing what to ignore.”
