    -----------------------------


    ESTELLE LOVI is an inspiring French-African artist and business consultant. After earning a degree from HEC Paris - top European Business School - and advancing to Regional Director, she felt unfulfilled by what was supposed to be a « dream job » and a « dream life ». In 2017, Lovi decided to quit her successful corporate career and launch her business. 


    A few months later, feeling confused and stuck, she took the biggest decision of her life: follow her intuition… unconditionally. The inner call was astonishing: take the stage. Little by little, Lovi discovered the Art of Heart-centered Creation that she now applies to artistic, business and life creation.


    Using her professional, personal and spiritual journey as a gateway to help others connect to their inner wisdom and achieve their highest dreams, she creates empowering, life-changing experiences combining art, pioneering teachings and consulting.

    Eco business - burnout - big stage comeback | Estelle Lovi for Lights on Europe (1/2)

    Eco business - burnout - big stage comeback | Estelle Lovi for Lights on Europe (1/2)

    “When you’re unsure about yourself, the worst thing that you can do is to ask for advice outside of self - it will just emphasise your doubts.” How to get out of this trap when you're feeling stuck, unfulfilled and miserable in a career that seems so cool for everybody but not for you?


    Listen to this first part of interview with Estelle Lovi:


    - Why do we decide to bury the voice of our intuition, and instead end up in “cool” jobs that make us feel miserable?


    - How to distinguish critical opportunities that allow us to discover a long-forgotten passion?


    - Is it possible to speed up the process of re-discovering one’s truth?


    - How to avoid the risk of burnout even once it feels like we’re on a heart-fulfilling path?


    The second part will continue digging deeper into Estelle’s motherhood; and her art of public speaking, writing and singing.

    Sick & tired of endless pressure to find your purpose? | Rose Bloomfield for Lights on Europe (2/3)

    Sick & tired of endless pressure to find your purpose? | Rose Bloomfield for Lights on Europe (2/3)

    What if the pursuit of your purpose gives you more stress than joy? Have you had enough of constantly fighting the system if you try to bring a new style of leadership? Can and should Europeans embrace the American culture of failing fast?


    In the first part of my conversation with Rose Bloomfield, she shared about her own journey of discovering her purpose, filled with heart and soul-breaking love relationships, reality shows, dropping out of school and entire career identity. You will see how it translated into her podcast on the intersection of community, technology and ancient wisdom. Watch it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kI89D...​


    In this second part, we dig deeper into the mystery of pursuing one’s purpose without a risk of burnout: - How to avoid the overwhelm on the path of discovering one’s purpose? - What is the best language for this conversation so that individual empowerment can serve as a tool for transformation of large organisations? - As a leader, pioneer, hero bringing a new culture of leadership - how do you know whether it is time to leave or continue pushing through? - What is missing when Europeans try to adopt the American attitude towards failure? Very soon we will release the third part!


    Rose shares her experience of coaching TED speakers and whether world’s business leaders should be sharing more openly about their failure. So don’t forget to subscribe to follow this channel not to miss the next episode! ... and don't forget to:

    How to react to miscarriage | Sofia Beloka for Lights on Europe (3/3)

    How to react to miscarriage | Sofia Beloka for Lights on Europe (3/3)

    If you had a miscarriage and felt like it was your fault… If you are her partner and feel overlooked…. If you are their friend and don’t know how to react… If you are passionate about personal development and performance hacking and wonder how could anybody think of an incomplete pregnancy as an opportunity for growth…


     


    Watch this last part of the Shameless series and the beautiful sharing of Sofia about her experience of miscarriage and healing that followed. How come the notion of failure is even part of this conversation if during pregnancy so little is within the parents’ control? Why did Sofia decide to share more on social media not just about the news, but also about the awkward reactions received from her network?


     


    This episode unravels valuable advice about how to react and be supportive in such situations: 


    techniques to heal after a miscarriage without a trauma and victimising; 

    special insights into the process that the woman’s partner goes through; and if there’s a difference in the femine and masculine way of recovering after an incomplete miscarriage; 

    how it is related to hacking performance, personal growth and embracing vulnerability in life’s most challenging circumstances.


     


    You can catch up the remainder of this Shameless series here:


    PART 1 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iSW_fsB2zOk&t=12s: how to achieve golden performance, inspired by strategies applied by elite athletes and Olympians? 

    PART 2 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tqsD08mW5rw&t=1s: how to embrace fear of failure as leaders in business but also in intimate relationships, balancing between our masculine and feminine energy.
