    TAREQ HADHAD shares his remarkable and inspiring story.  He is the CEO of Peace by Chocolate, a family-owned, Canadian chocolate company that not only makes delicious fair-trade chocolate, but they also donate time, money and other resources to promote peace and improve lives.  It’s the Hadhad family’s way of giving back.   In 2015, they had to start from scratch as new Canadians, after their original chocolate factory in Syria was bombed out.  The Hadhad’s lived hand-to-mouth as refugees for several years before Tareq learned about a potential opportunity in Canada from a kind cab driver.   He acted on that knowledge and soon re-built the family business in a foreign land. Tareq shares that story in our podcast, along with so much of his wisdom.

    Themes in this episode:

    - finding hope when all hope seems lost

    - finding peace in a time of violence and chaos

    - the importance of having a vision for your life

    - real talk on how much we can do to change the world as individuals

    - the incredible power we have to change lives with everyday acts of kindness

    - what it’s like to land as a refugee in a foreign country’

    - how you can succeed in life with integrity and generosity

    - how to find inspiration in times of crisis

Like a book you can’t put down

This new podcast is spot on for people with ambitious goals. The “broadcaster turned podcaster” is an excellent host and interviewer, and has attracted outstanding guests. I am thoroughly enjoying the topics and speakers. Crystal’s authentic interest in their journeys is contagious, making it so easy to get engaged in their stories and crave their insights and lessons, which of course are applicable to our own lives.
