On this first episode, I am excited to have Ayla Khosroshahi with me, an authentic woman, who is not afraid to share her vulnerability and courage. To listen to the experiences she went through in her career and her personal life, will inspire you to face everyday challenges in a professional level and as a real woman on this Earth today.

Ayla describes herself with a poem: “A pinch of here, a dash of there, some of this, and a lot of that, none of those, but too many of these. I work with a mix of head, heart + hands, here I am an artist.”.  Ayla is also the co founder of MINDSHIFT NINJA , she is a strategist and a Brain-Based Executive Coach.  MINDSHIFT NINJA focuses on optimizing human performance, an empowered team, and inspired leadership. Ayla, along with her brother, Yashar, combine the neurosciences, psychology, strategic planning, and mindfulness techniques to empower individuals and groups to do better by thinking better.

Ayla is also a mother, who has gone through a traumatic birth experience. Listen to this episode and find out how she struggled and managed to make it through, becoming  more resilient and wise, acknowledging the hard truth of the distance between expectations and reality in motherhood.
