Can you trust your intuition to lead you out of the most difficult circumstances and into a life of joy and fulfilment? Award-winning artist and movement leader Stef Mariani believes you can, having experienced personal tragedy and learning how to move herself from being shut down to playing at the top of her game in just a few years.
Stef Mariani won awards as a negotiator and business strategist based in Hawaii, closing over US$100M in real estate deals. She also won Hawaii's Na Hoku Hanohano Award for her album Stay Gold In 2018. Stef has produced live events and attended many high profile ones herself including the Grammys. Her current focus is to grow her international movement of people committed to staying true to themselves despite the worst circumstances such as the financial impact of COVID and the war in Ukraine.
Quotes from this episode:
"The key with events (and if this is the only thing you do, it will make all the difference) is your mindset. When you walk in, you need to take time to really think about why you're there and who your audience is and why you care about those people."
"It's hard to throw a bomb at somebody who you feel connected with, because if I hurt you, I hurt myself. You don't open fire at schools. If you feel connected. You don't throw a grenade. You can't even participate in war, be a soldier if you feel connected. And the fact is we are all connected."
"If you care about people, it doesn't matter what you do, you're going to do really well."
