No Excuses, Reach Your Full Potential in 2019 with Soulaima Gourani

Soulaima Gourani dedicates her life to improving the lives of others. She helps people and companies shine by helping them unleash their enormous potential and find their real talents, purpose, and passions. And it all started when she was fired from my job while pregnant and expecting her first child back in 2007. At the time she noticed no one wanted to hire pregnant women. This inspired her to start her own business – her need for personal and professional freedom.

“I needed to create a sense of control over my own life. I never wanted to get fired again and have another organization take control of my life. I’ve also always hated organizations that are too “structured.” As a result that led me to co-write the bestseller, “Unboss”, because I felt like there was a need for organizations that were more independent and “free spirited," States Soulaima.

Soulaima Gourani is a motivational speaker and philanthropist and a Ted Talk Mentor who does approximately 200 public talks per year around the world. She is an advisor to major companies on customer loyalty, strategic networking, change management, employee motivation and future of business. She has worked as an advisor and speaker for clients such as Samsung, DuPont, LEGO, McKinsey, DELL, Microsoft, Stanford University, BMW, Cisco, and many more.

In March 2012 Soulaima was selected as one of the 192 management leaders in 2012-2017 by the World Economic Forum. In 2016 Soulaima was appointed by TED Talks as a mentor to the speakers.

Triple S Ranch Napa, Re-evaluate Priorities with Derek Webb

Derek Webb, former CEO of Webb Asset Management, lost almost everything in the crash of 2008. The shake-up forced him to reevaluate his priorities and reinvent himself. After much introspection, Derek decided that he wanted to get out of the world of finance and instead devote himself to restoring historic event venues, places where people could potentially disconnect from the modern world in an idyllic setting. Derek believed that, like him, people were starving for authentic experiences in a world that is increasingly driven by technology.

Triple S Ranch is located on the Mendocino Coast, about three hours north of San Francisco, Derek bought Spring Ranch first, in 2000 (and opened it in 2010). Next up was Triple S Ranch in Napa Valley, which Derek bought in 2011 and opened in 2015. Both properties were essentially in ruins at the time of purchase. Derek devoted himself to restoring them to their former glory – and then some – sourcing period appropriate architectural salvage and antiques from around the world, including a Victorian barn that he shipped piece by piece from Canada to add to Spring Ranch’s grounds. www.triplesranchnapa.com
