Living consciously helps us to be mindful and better parents. It helps us to stop and think and not be stuck just to please our stubborn or ignorant self. Helps us to have a flexible mindset which encourages to flow smoothly through our challenges in life.

    Do you Have a Servant Mentality? Find out from the expert

    Do you Have a Servant Mentality? Find out from the expert

    Guest: Muneeza Nasrullah
    Muneeza believes in a servant mentality. Find out in her own words what does she mean by it? I believe, this is a good advice for all of us.   
    Muneeza's Philosophy: There are many qualities and skills that go into being an excellent real estate professional – integrity, in-depth community and market knowledge, marketing savvy, effective negotiation skills and a high-quality professional network, all of which are hallmarks of how I work. That said, in my experience as a real estate professional, I’ve also found that providing the very best service is essentially about putting my clients first. This means keeping myself accessible, being a good listener as well as a good communicator, and responding quickly to your needs.
    This “client first” philosophy has always been my approach and it requires me to continually improve my skills and ways of doing business. In addition, I’ve found that the latest technologies are enabling me to do everything I’ve always done, only much more quickly and efficiently. They’ve also helped me to extend the range of services I provide to my clients. So when you decide that you’d like to buy or sell a home in the Metrowest/Worcester, or Greater Boston areas, please contact me.

    Passion - Integrity - A Million Dollar - Who is Dr. Naheed Usmani?

    Passion - Integrity - A Million Dollar - Who is Dr. Naheed Usmani?

    Guest: Dr. G. Nahid Usmani
    Part 2
    Dr. Usmani, a Pakistani-born physician, is dedicated to improving medical education in Pakistan. She said her mother inspired her to pursue a career in medicine. Her mother came from a small town in Pakistan, dreamed of a modern college education and became a member of Pakistan’s first class of medical graduates.
    Usmani came to the United States after graduating in 1980 from medical school in Pakistan, where she grew up. She had a fellowship at New York's prestigious Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and joined UMass in 1999. "It was the warmest, most inviting place I've ever worked," Usmani said of UMass.
    Usmani followed her mother, Amina, a primary care physician, into medicine, and told a story of a girl who was rebellious from a young age, just like her mother. "My mom was a feminist before there were feminists," said Usmani, one of six children. "She raised her daughters to be independent." When Usmani landed in New York, she said she found the United States to be exactly as she wanted it.
    She was finally free from objectification of women back at home and able to pursue what she felt was anything she wanted. Her father gave her permission to marry the Harvard student she met only if she first took a qualifying exam for medical school in the U.S. "If someone says I can't do something, I have to do it," she said. For Usmani, she founded the New England chapter of the Association of Physicians of Pakistani Descent of North America.
    There are an estimated 18,000 to 20,000 such doctors in the United States, Usmani said, and she will lead them as the president-elect of the national group. Usmani has traveled back to Pakistan on a few occasions to help medical students like her. Those trips could be a reminder of what she left behind, with a bomb blast hitting her hospital once and killing one of her patients.
    She said much of her drive professionally comes from wanting to prove herself and her fellow Pakistanis in the years after the Sept. 11 attacks, when they could be looked at more suspiciously. "I needed to establish a professional identity in this country," she said.

Great conversations.

It's such a pleasure and often informative listening to these conversations. Meaningful topics and smart guests.

Bringing us together

At a time when we are more connected than ever yet seemingly more divided than ever, Shua enters into dialogue with people from all walks of life, discussing faith, parenting, and more, all to breed understanding and empathy. If you've ever wanted to understand what it really means to be a Muslim or a Sikh, to get inside the head of an entrepreneur, and to understand the struggles of multiple identities that immigrants go through, this podcast does an excellent job of illuminating the underrepresented lives of all these folks and more.
