editor's note Wow here we are again, no sooner than the last issue was rushed out the door am I sitting down again writing my introduction to our final issue for 2021. I don't know about you, but I for one are excited for Christmas Season. In New Zealand, we have been in lockdown since August (and I mean full on lockdown). Not only is this hard as an adult, but I feel for my kids as well, doing homeschooling and being away from their friends. Whenever I feel a bit overwhelmed or feel a negative thought making its way into my conscious, I stop, take a deep breath and just say "this too shall pass". This has been my coping secret weapon during this horrible lockdown. The silver lining - Christmas! Man, do I live Christmas, not only for the fabulous summer nights with my family, or drinks with friends but a time for reflection, a reflection on what a crazy year we had and a reflection on an incredible year ahead. So if you find yourself that 2021 has not been your year for whatever reason, take a moment, take a deep breath and remember this too shall pass and great things are ahead of you. I wish you an incredible Christmas & happy new year! God Bless

Anaida Deti BEATING THE ODDS WHAT IS YOUR BACKGROUND? I was born in Albania, a very small country in Europe. I immigrated to Italy in 1997, as in Albania there was a civil war at the time. I was only 16 years old at the time and my parents were very scared that something bad would happen so they decided that it would be better for us to move there. The journey was not easy, I was working and going to school at the same time. After finishing high school, I decided to go to dental school. It was my dream since I was a little girl to be a dentist. Dentistry was something that had always fascinated me. This does not mean that I wasn’t terrified to go to the dentist! Sure, I was, but I also found it very interesting. I used to say that when I become a dentist, I will help all the people who are scared like me, to look forward to their dental appointments. Now I see kids looking forward to their dental appointments, and adults as well. In 2002, I met my husband and we decided to immigrate to Canada. It was only two young people with big dreams and not much else. We had very little information, but when you are young you don’t think too much. When we came to Canada, things were not as easy as we thought. I didn’t speak English and my school meant nothing here, so I had to start everything from scratch. It was quite difficult to say the least, but I was very determined to do something with my life and this was my chance. A lot of people did not take me seriously and that made me work harder and prove to myself and everyone around me that I can do it. After many years of school and getting my license, I founded DentalX in 2013. Initially, DentalX started with only me, booking appointments in my car and seeing patients in the late afternoons or Sundays after I worked all day for other dental offices. Then, my next three offices I shared with other dental professionals until I was able to open my own office in 2016. The day that I signed the lease, I felt sick to my stomach and the only thing I could think of was how was I going to be able to pay the rent. But I can say that I was able to pay the rent and some more. The beginning was very hard to say the least, but now I have an award-winning dental clinic in Toronto and I am in the process of opening my second location.

HOW DO YOU DIFFERENTIATE YOURSELF FROM YOUR COMPETITORS, WHAT MAKES YOU UNIQUE? DentalX is a very unique option for the public. It’s slightly different from a traditional dental office because we focus more on the preventative side of dentistry. We also offer longer dental appointments that include more extensive oral hygiene instructions that incorporate a lot of visuals. The office also looks different, it feels like you’re in a spa rather than a dental office. We offer many different relaxing techniques for the patients making the dental appointment more comfortable and less intimidating. We specialize in seeing nervous patients that do not like going to the dentist. Our warm environment and approach makes them more comfortable. My patients and my staff believed in my vision and saw something in us that other dental offices did not have, which is a good relationship between myself and them. My passion for the dental field and my commitment to taking care of patients was conveyed in the best way possible, and this made them believe in us.

HOW HAS THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC IMPACT YOU AND WHAT ACTIONS DID YOU TAKE TO PIVOT?

Covid-19 has impacted every single business, including ours, even though we are considered essential. We have made quite a few changes in the office to meet the COVID requirements, but some patients are still scared to come in, especially older patients.

Also, a lot of patients are having financial hardship and they cannot afford to come in unless it’s a dental emergency. A lot of patients have lost their jobs, along with their dental insurance. We have seen many more emergencies this last year, due to increased stress. The most common dental emergency we have seen is teeth grinding, which is directly related to stress.

Routine check ups and dental cleanings have been postponed by many patients. This will increase the dental emergencies in the near future, which will ultimately end up being expensive, time consuming and more painful.

IF YOU COULD DO IT ALL OVER AGAIN, WHAT WILL YOU CHANGE AND WHY?

Even though I can say that things are slowly coming back.

to spend more time with my kids, they grow up

I would do everything all over again even if I go back a 100 times, but the only thing I would do is so fast.

Whenever I am asked by my students about my next course that I plan to design and teach so that they can pre-enroll in my class, or whenever I hear how my students applied what I taught them in my class to their businesses/journey and the positive impact it had on them, it brings a smile on my face and gives me joy that I am able to give back and pass on to my students what my professors gave me: a pathway to grow and harness using the knowledge tools necessary.

Our parents told us that everyone faces hardships in their lives but it’s how individuals deal and view those challenges that sets them apart from others. They taught us to forge ahead even when matters became challenging in our lives while growing up as young girls working hard to seek knowledge. As much as it’s a challenge to be a woman leader entrepreneur in a newly established field of AI and digital transformation, I find inspiration from female leaders such as the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg (RBG) and her inspirational story of being a strong woman leader in a male dominating field.

Diving deep into what is holding them back and why they continue to do the same things over and over expecting a different result – Insanity. Her ability to consistently elevate her clients personal branding and career toolbox has garnered her the moniker of “The Change CEO.” She carries her open-minded approach forward as a coach guiding clients to new career and business opportunities, with her Personal Branding Success Menu program or the Entrepreneur success blueprint to leave corporate America and start a new venture. As a speaker motivating audiences all over the world, and as an author and mentor who empowers others to confidently live a life without regrets. Those who know her best would say that Michele “lives her life with her hair on fire” and encourages others to embrace change, find their passion, and strengthen their mindset to maximize their

TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF? I have always loved the idea of creating beautiful hair, but I didn’t know that it could be a career option until I was around the age of 10. I had never stepped foot inside a hair salon until at least that age. I know it sounds strange, but I had only ever had my haircut at home by a family member with kitchen scissors. Yes, I can hear the gasps of horror from every reader at this very moment. But once I stepped into a salon for the first time, it was better than the most imaginable candy store that any child with a sweet tooth could dream of. It was from then on, that I knew I wanted to be a hairstylist. There would never be a plan b “just in case I failed.” Failure wasn’t an option for me. Fast forward many years later and I became licensed. I noticed around year 7 of being licensed, I began settling into dangerous territory. I was getting comfortable and becoming comfortable marks the beginning of the death of your career. I am not a New Year's resolution type of person, but I decided to begin taking as many continuing education classes as possible each year. I knew that with each class I took I would be motivated to stay relevant in the beauty industry. As much as I loved taking classes I began to want to share my knowledge with other stylists. And from there my dream of being an educator began. I worked extremely hard to specialize in my craft and I have been blessed to work for some amazing companies. I am now a master cosmetologist within my state, an artistic educator for Joico, a styling educator for Olivia Garden, on the education team for Beauty Launchpad Magazine and I am a guest writer for multiple beauty publications across the

person training come back and we begin to relearn what a sense of normalcy is like in our world. I feel like it would be a challenge to dive back into in person training hair shows considering the lack of in person interaction we have had over the last couple of years. I can guarantee that you will most definitely be seeing more of me in 2022 and I can't wait for you to follow my journey.

LOOKING BACK ON YOUR JOURNEY, WHAT IS ONE THING YOU WOULD DO DIFFERENTLY? I honestly don't believe I wouldn’t change a thing about my journey. I have made many discoveries throughout my journey. I have grown in more ways than I can imagine and even learned ways to be a better business owner, a better stylist, and a better mentor. If I were to change anything about my journey I wouldn't be able to share my experiences with new stylists coming into the industry. I did much of the groundwork myself when it comes to my business in my career however I have had many mentors from along the way that I owe many thanks to as well. I began my career as just a hairstylist and I have evolved into so much more than that. It is my mission to break through every glass ceiling to show that your demographic does not determine the level of your success. And had I changed anything about my journey, I would not be so determined to build my empire and legacy.

Speaking...As a globally recognized latina speaker in

Changing the way medicine is practiced world-wide is what I have invented. My name is Dr. Jacqueline Darna CEO and medical inventor of NoMo Bands. The first and only natural way to stop nausea, vomiting, migraines, and insomnia using my 3:1 essential oil infused acupressure wristbands called NoMo Nausea, NoMo Migraine, & NoMo Sleepless Nights. In a few short years, we are now used in hospitals for surgery, labor & delivery, and chemotherapy in 12 countries of the world and can be found in over 20,000 retail stores like Walmart, CVS, Bed Bath & Beyond, and BuyBuy Baby to help pregnant mommies with morning sickness, kids with car sickness, family cruises, or those who suffer from migraines, insomnia and much more in seconds. I believe entrepreneurship is something you are born with. For me this fire did not ignite until I became a patient that was uncontrollably vomiting after my emergency c-section, and as a practicing physician & anesthesia provider, I knew all the medications that should help me but didn't. Once I use the Eastern medicine practice of acupressure at the P6 point on the wrist and smelled peppermint, I instantly stopped getting sick and knew I needed to create a stylish, waterproof, easy to use, and affordable wristband to help everyone else combining these 2 principles. I am now known as the award winning Naturopathic physician & prior Anesthesia provider featured in Forbes, ABC, NBC, Today's Show, Daytime, and Winner of Shark Tank's The Big Pitch, Top WBE CEO, United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, WBENC Pepsico Pitch, NAWBO, & Florida SBDC's Woman of the Year.

LOOKING BACK ON YOUR JOURNEY, WHAT IS ONE THING YOU WOULD DO DIFFERENTLY? Know your audience & find the right buyers! To all the college students and future entrepreneurs out there, please take a buisness and marketing class. The hardest part about being an entrepreneur is when you are working for yourself you are 24 hours a day and it can feel lonely. At the beginning it was just me and I was the Chief Everything Officer. Inventing the product, obtaining a patent, and all the back-end office was the easy part, what was truly challenging is the marketing and business side of it since I had never taken a class other than my medical degree. I quickly learned to network and ask for help. " Business is the business of people not products or services."

I had many sleepless nights trying to complete my college classes knowing the next day I would be running a fortune 500 financial institution.
