Hello, I'm Sahar Andrade.
Growing up as the daughter of a diplomat, I got used to changing early on. Because my family moved to a new country every four years, I had to constantly adjust to new places, new cultures, and new friends. It wasn't until later on did I realize that I grew up reinventing myself with every move. And trust me, it wasn't easy. I would initially feel uncomfortable and scared to go to a new school and meet new people until reinventing myself became my second nature.
When I finally saw the joy that reinventing myself could bring, I finally found my purpose to bring those same exact tools to others.
Because I grew up in a culture where women's rights were not the norm and women were not always respected, I always wanted to prove myself as a professional and successful woman. I went to college and graduated with degrees in Internal Medicine and Surgery, minor in Psychiatry (never practised Medicine). Since I was a little girl, I had wanted to become a doctor to make my parents proud and earn the respect of a society that didn't always hold women in high regard.
But that desire to make my parents proud came at the cost of my own happiness. I hated my intern shifts at the hospital; I couldn't understand how I could be so miserable if I was making the people I loved the happiest. I felt stuck and couldn't bear the idea that this was what the rest of my life would look like. After some intense soul-searching, I decided to change my path and pursue marketing for international airlines with the blessing of my father.
Within two weeks, I reinvented myself more than I could have ever imagined. At 21 years old, I moved to Los Angeles by myself to once again immerse myself in a new place, a new life, and a new culture.
And the change didn't end there. Throughout that process of reinventing myself, I changed industries three times in the next fourteen years.
As I excelled in my international marketing career, I opened new offices for major corporations around the world. I studied local cultures, laws, and human relations, I also trained hundreds of employees and consulted on huge international projects as "Project Manager".
Despite all of the success and recognition I achieved in the corporate world, I still felt a void. In 2010, I realized that I was not living my full potential. My husband (my rock) said it best: "You are wasting your time working for others." He couldn't have been more right; I had passions and dreams that I could never fulfil within a corporate framework.
When I realized that I would need to reinvent myself once again, I was terrified. I had no idea that I would be able to support myself financially on my own; I wondered if I was just a fraud and my previous successes were pure luck. I struggled to remind myself that I had made tremendous amounts of money for other people, and I could recreate my previous successes while allowing for my dreams to come true. After nine months of walking through all of my fears and insecurities, my first business was born at the beginning of 2011.
Four years later, I am making the income I had always desired. Despite some friends and family trying to discourage me--particularly because I started out in a terrible time for the economy--I've been making my dreams come true ever since I truly reinvented myself to greatness.
I had a vision for my life that I needed to make a reality...and I did. It wasn't easy and it wasn't without a lot of pain and many tears and fear and self-doubt and at times feeling like a fraud, but I reinvented myself yet again because I believed in myself and I had faith that my vision would come to life.
I spent countless hours, dollars, and tears making my dreams come true; and now I am ready to share the tools I've learned with you. I know they work because I have brought incredible success to myself, my family, and numerous other people I've mentored.
Let me take you on a journey. Let me guide you to make your own dreams come true. Step by step, I will be there the whole way with you.
