Embrace Your Greatness. Affirm Yourself. Live your life to the fullest. Face every challenge head-on. Mireille Toulekima, our inspirational person of the month, a successful engineer, published author, mentor and so much more, embodies all those aspects and shares with us her exciting, inspiring and motivating journey. I met this incredible woman at a Les Brown event my husband and I attended a few years ago. What a refreshing and striking encounter! We immediately clicked! What made this encounter even more special was the fact that we were from the same country.. Gabon. It is a small country with a very small population. We really thought that we would be the only Gabonese citizens in the audience, until she introduced herself : ” My name is Mireille Toulekima, I am from Gabon and I am very excited to attend this event”. Despite the distance, our relationship is growing stronger. Mireille is an extraordinary woman, wife, mother, mentor, …you name it… she bubbles with energy and definitely knows her purpose in life. She agreed to be interviewed and I really hope you get inspired to unleash your true potential. Mireille Toulekima invites you to Embrace Your Greatness.

Single motherhood is one of the most overwhelmingly challenging experiences a woman can have in her life.

In 2015, I attended a very practical training session organized by Gerry Robert and facilitated by Brian Nieves.

I don’t know about you but I am inspired by people around me. I just love reading or listening to people’s stories about how they dealt with certain setbacks in their life or how they are overcoming a major crisis in their daily life. I met a lovely lady, Delores Curtis, who at her heaviest, weighed over 350 pounds. I found her story so inspirational and motivational for people who are trying and struggling to lose weight that I decided to choose her as the inspirational person of the month and publish an article about her Inspirational weight loss journey. She opened up her heart to us and accepted with a lot of enthusiasm to share her weight loss journey with us.
