Abi Grigsby is a rising model who has made a name for herself in the modelling industry through her natural talent and dedication to her craft. Abi discovered her love for modelling at a young age and pursued it relentlessly throughout her childhood and teenage years. She honed her skills through pageants, runway shows, and various photoshoots, building a solid foundation of experience and confidence to serve her well in her future career. She initially got into the modelling industry by entering beauty pageants. She joined the Top Model of the World Philippines pageant in July 2016 with two weeks’ notice. The pageant needed a specific number for the competition to go ahead, and the pageant’s director contacted her to join. She eventually became the second runner-up, which shocked her as she had no previous experience in pageants so she wasn’t expecting to make it into the Top 5.

The following year she entered a pageant called “Mutya Ng Pilipinas Australia” (Pearl of Australia) beauty pageant. She gained a lot of exposure in the modelling industry by joining this pageant, which led her into me meeting the majority of the photographers that she now works with regularly. When she competed overseas, she also gained several contacts with various modelling agencies and photographers. Throughout 2017 she also competed in the Miss International Australia pageant, finishing as second runner-up and winning the Miss Model of the World Title. Furthermore, she competed in the Miss Teen Universe Australia pageant in December of that year. All of these competitions led her to meet so many creatives in the industry; photographers were looking for fresh faces to shoot, and makeup artists needed a model to work on for skill enhancements. Slowly, through these connections, she was able to build the network that she currently has.

As she looks to the future, Abi remains focused on her craft and committed to expanding her horizons. With her talent, drive, and passion for her work, Abi is poised to become one of the industry’s most sought-after models, inspiring audiences and fellow models alike with her artistry and vision.

Global Elite Models magazine recently caught up with Abi to discuss her journey in the modelling industry and here’s what went down:

Could you please tell our readers something about yourself that others don’t probably know about?

Most people don’t know that I am actually quite a sporty person. When I tell people I play cricket, I’m often met with a shocked response, as those around me see me post a lot of my modelling work, so they assume that I model full-time. However, I do enjoy playing community sports, as it gives me a chance to stay active, as well as allows me to socialise and meet new people.

How did you become a model? What’s it like to be a model?

I started modelling when I was 17, and it all began when I started participating in beauty pageants. As I am half Filipino, I competed in the local Miss Philippines pageants they held in Melbourne. Starting in small competitions led me to compete internationally twice so far and was an excellent gateway to the modelling world.

As for how it feels to be a model, I don’t feel any different from the people around me. Modelling is essentially a paying hobby for me, and it certainly has taken me places. However, at the end of the day, I just feel like anyone else – a simple human being just trying to get by in this crazy life!

What has been your greatest triumph, to date?

The greatest triumph to date would be competing in international beauty pageants and gracing magazine covers, just like this one.

Every now and then, I still remember my teenage years, when I was painfully shy and so insecure about my looks. I remember every day fantasising about looking like someone else. It took me years to build self-confidence and finally be happy in the body that I am in.

What has been your greatest lesson, and how have you used that lesson in your life?

The greatest life lesson I carry with me to this day is to not worry about trying to please everyone or anyone. At first, I found it difficult to accept that there are people who won’t like you based on your life choices, interests or simply have different preferences in life. Still, I have learned that you should never let someone’s disapproval of you deter you from doing whatever it is you want in life.

If you could travel back in time and alter one historical event, where would you go and what would you attempt to change?

If I could travel back and alter a historical event, I would prevent the holocaust from happening and save millions of innocent lives. The holocaust was heavily touched on throughout my teenage years, particularly in high school, so that historical event, in particular, has always had a profound impact on me. It is definitely a touchy subject for myself and others, even in this present day.

What do you think you came into this life to learn, and what do you think you came here to teach?

I believe I came into this life to learn that things won’t always go the way you planned, no matter how certain you are of the situation. I had big plans for my life when I was 18 that didn’t come to fruition, and honestly, when I realised things wouldn’t turn out the way I’d always hoped, I felt disheartened and didn’t have a plan for the next step.

Over the past few years, I’ve learned to trust the process and the struggle you go through. I’ve always firmly believed in the saying, “everything happens for a reason,” I also think that in life, you are never denied, only redirected!

What projects are you working on right now?

I am currently focusing on my pageantry and hoping to compete internationally again this year. Most people don’t realise how much time, effort, and preparation goes into competing in pageants, especially internationally. A lot of work goes behind the scenes for both the organisers and the contestants, so I am currently building myself up to be able to give my best performance when the time comes to be on stage again!

What would you still like to attempt in your modeling career?

In terms of my modelling career, I would still like to give international modelling a try. I have never had the opportunity to travel for work opportunities. However, I believe modelling would be a great opportunity to gain that experience in working abroad, as I’ve always loved the idea of travel, so it would be fulfilling to get paid work out of it too!

What advice would you give to those hoping to follow in your footsteps?

As cliche as it may sound, my only advice would be to keep going and never give up. When I first decided to get into modelling, and start participating in beauty pageants, I had my share of people who discouraged me and tried to sway me against it. I found that when I cut off people who didn’t support me and instead surrounded myself with people who believed in me, it fuelled me to try even harder for them and to prove to myself that my ambitions are valid and achievable goals.

In his spare time, Elton enjoys spending time outdoors exploring the Texas Hill Country on hiking trails.

We recently sat down and talked entrepreneurship with Elton, and here’s what he had to say:

What was your life like before starting your business?

I grew up in Port Arthur, Texas, for most of my elementary and junior high school years. We led a pretty humble and simple life. Looking back, I can tell we definitely were struggling and of the lower income class. However, I never once knew that when I was younger. It wasn’t until high school that I realized how far we had come. I was extremely fortunate to have a rock-solid family unit. A man couldn’t ask for a better set of parents and sisters than I have. I also had the advantage of our neighbors being just as important and loving as our own family. This was very important as my father worked lots of overtime and side jobs to help sustain us. My mother was raising three kids, our extracurricular activities, and getting her teaching degree from Lamar University. After she graduated, we moved to Kirbyville, Texas. This is where I spent my high school and young adult years. The people I met there and the friendships I’ve made along the way, I couldn’t imagine a better place in the world for an impressionable young man to grow up and learn. This is probably the biggest reason it was an easy decision to write my first song, “Kirbyville .” It outlines and highlights some of the simple yet crucial things I learned there.

What event in your life made you decide that you were going to be in business?

When I was 28 years old, I was approached by someone I respected for their business knowledge and professionalism. Basically, the pitch given to me was this, they needed someone who could bring a blue-collar work ethic, all-around knowledge of problem-solving, and the ability to make it relatable and applicable to everyone to join their ownership. I literally looked behind me when the pitch was given, as if they were talking to someone behind me. No money to put in, no fancy suit, no polished vocabulary, just the basic things my father, mother, and my mentors had instilled in me for many years, in every endeavor since those basic things have gotten me promoted and pushed ahead more than anything.

What were the “big wins” early on that made you realize “this really is going work?

Ironically my “big win” was a failure…or more specifically, a failure happened, and the whole world didn’t end. Sure, it hurt for a bit. I was embarrassed, angry, and all the usual emotions, but the following day came regardless. I got up, showed up, and went at it again. It was exhilarating to realize one failure wasn’t the end. Coworkers still spoke to me, still believed in me, and most importantly, they gave me advice on how not to have it happen that way again. At the end of the day, I went home, and my kids still loved me, which awakened my true desire to succeed. I relate this to my first time wearing football pads at football practice. I’m lined up across from a pretty athletic guy with more experience than me, probably 50 more pounds than me. The whistle blows, and BAM… he plows me over. I got up and realized nothing was broken, no blood, and it really didn’t even hurt. Game on! I found a whole other gear and adrenaline level I had never experienced. For me, in business, it’s the exact same way when you are faced with that tough challenge or a ruthless problem; it’s time to lower your shoulder and go right through it.

On the flip side, what events happened where you weren’t sure if the business would survive, but you figured out a way to pull through?

The COVID-19 pandemic was by far the toughest challenge in business I have ever faced. Dealing with a direct problem can be extremely tough but dealing with a problem that you have no control over, now that can be maddening. It challenged us to a whole new level. Made small, local niche companies have to think on a global scale to survive. It pushed us to all work together, even if we were remote. My biggest fear in business is being unable to hand a team member their paycheck. I literally have had nightmares over this. I know we still deal with some of the fallout from the pandemic today, but it is encouraging to see the business community’s resolve to come through it.

What makes your business stand out from your competitors?

My ability to blend common sense, production practices, and safety together has been a massive part of my success with Hol-Tech Resources LLC. I also spend most of my time understanding what my potential does, what their work culture looks like, and what regulations they may be subject to. When it comes to safety consulting and training, I believe that finding a solution that is either cost-effective or could possibly make the client money in the future is the best course of action.

What motivates you daily?

My main motivation is that amazing feeling I get when I’m able to see some sort of growth or change for the better that I have played a part in, no matter how small. Helping others and spreading knowledge and wisdom have always been a huge driving factor in keeping me energized and driven toward my goal.

Who are your influences growing up and in business?

My father and mother were my first big inspirations. They taught me the value of hard work. They also showed me how a team should work by watching them work together to raise our family. I have been extremely fortunate to learn from some outstanding individuals in business. Working with my father for the first several years, he took every opportunity to ensure I learned all the ancillary pieces to be a well-rounded and effective worker. Kasey Taylor, the CEO of RT Technical strengthened my belief in humanity by teaching me to be kind to everyone I meet because you never know what they are going through. My good friend and business associate Joe Tant continually inspires me with his diligent spirit to help people and businesses. He has shown me how important it is to stop and realize every business is made up of people with individual personalities and needs. If you take time to help or inspire one, that act can spread like wildfire to the next.

Going forward, what big goals do you have for this business for the next 3-10 years?

I’m excited about the new year opportunity, and we have some exciting things coming to Hol-Tech. We are looking at expanding our services to include a full-service site compliance piece in our business. This will help facilities be better prepared for the entities that hold them accountable and keep their employees more aware and safer.

Even more exciting is watching our Small Business Friday! Video Podcast grow. Joe Tant and I started this about a year ago now and it has continued to grow beyond our expectations. We spotlight local small businesses free of charge on each episode. This allows them to save money on advertising and helps get their name out on over ten social media platforms with just over 3.1 million viewers. In the spirit of constantly changing and growing, we have added the superb talents of Bonnie Revia (BMAX Inc. Productions) and our local drone master, Matthew Chance (Drone Wurx), to our team. The response to our program has been amazing, and we appreciate our team and our gracious sponsors who make it possible.

What’s Your Top 3 advice for aspiring entrepreneurs and business owners?

• Never, ever give up. Don’t blame anyone else for your failures; learn and move up.
• Embrace the suck. It’s going to happen, just find a positive note and push on.
• Don’t be offended so easily. It’s called “taking offense” for a reason. It can’t be given, so just refuse to fall into the trap of taking it.

How do you want to impact the world, and what kind of legacy do you want to have?

I hope I can leave this world just a little bit kinder than I found it. I don’t mean the mushy, sunshine, and rainbows feeling. I’m talking about true, steadfast kindness. Doing something nice for someone, without expecting anything, is the grandest and most sincere thing you can do for an individual. Impact, to me, is a very powerful thing. I’ve heard it said, if we had the phrase “But, what if I’m wrong” tattooed on our trigger finger and the hand we type or write with, maybe we would save some massive heartache to the world. This phrase really resonates with me. In the age of “keyboard warriors” and just firing off malicious text, social media responses, or the ill-conceived notion of “Cancel Culture,” I hope that by what I have done, said, or taught, will have debunked these methods and shone a light on how important kindness and grace are to our world.

Meet The Woman Behind The Cover Of The Latest Issue Of GEM Magazine: Robbie Canner

Download Now

Robbie Canner is a 63-year-old international model, and an international and national judge. She was crowned Ms. World back in 2018/19, and she’s also a public speaker on the topic “Age Is No Barrier.”

Since winning the Ms. World title, her public profile has considerably grown, allowing her to promote her platform and raise awareness and funds for cancer research. Winning major international titles in her 60s has given her a platform, showing men and women from all walks of life that age is no barrier to what anyone can achieve.

Since losing her son to cancer, her emotional and mental stress led her to visit thoughts such as, “I don’t want to be here anymore,” or “I want to be with my son.” However, eventually, her inner strength led her to want still to continue living, have a say, and give direction to help others in any area of situational, emotional, and mental stress – assuring them that things can get better in time.

She loves chatting to future queens and friends she meets along her journey and wants to help them achieve their hopes and goals.

GEM magazine recently caught up with Robbie to discuss her journey in the industry, and here’s what went down:

Could you please tell our readers a brief background about yourself?

I joined pageantry at the grand young age of 57 years old after I lost my son to cancer. Being not in a really great place emotionally, I was looking for something to put my mind to and a charity platform for my son’s cancer, and that’s when I found the Scott Canner Young Investigator Grant through Tour de Cure. My first pageant in 2015 gave me a taste for pageants and the great friendships I made. In 2016 I won the Ms. Global United Australia title, which sent me to Minneapolis, USA, for the Ronald McDonald House for kids’ cancer, where I won the international title. From there, I entered Ms. World in 2018 and won that, and from there, I started my international modelling career, including Fashion shoots, TV Interviews, and becoming a pageant director. Now I love mentoring our young Queens, growing their confidence, and developing their future careers.

How did you become an international influencer? What’s it like to be an influencer?

Being called an International Influencer is a title that I am not totally comfortable with. Still, nevertheless, a title that gives me a platform to chat, mentor, and help develop and encourage people of all ages being in the same situation as me and a level that allows contact from those who otherwise, just like me in the past would not normally have someone to speak their emotions to. It gives me great satisfaction to know that I have many followers around the world who respect my situation and advise me to keep in touch and grow just like I have.

What has been your greatest triumph to date?

It’s where I have grown through having the guts to get up and ask for help, put my worst emotions out there, and am now in a position to help others. Triumph is a multi-level word, encompassing emotions, passions, growth, development, and being able to get up and get going again in the face of many adversities. Also, the confidence of winning a Ms. World title and growing from there has become very personal to me in the growth and mental arenas of walking International runways worldwide.

What do you think you came into this life to learn, and what do you think you came here to teach?

I came into this life to enjoy, love life, try and make all the right decisions, make fabulous friends, stay fit and healthy and should adversity come into my life, work out how and why I would address this for the best outcome of not only for myself but others.

This is an open-ended question, but it makes me look inside myself for the answers. I feel I am on the right path to achieving most of the outcomes. Where I would like to go from here is a growth of confidence which, as someone said to me, “No one would think you lacked confidence.” Well, I do, in many ways, and I do not like conflict in any form. If faced with this, I can withdraw into myself, but I always find a way out of my own maze and take on lessons; growth is always the outcome.

To have a platform to help others in many ways, from opportunities, chats, social media, guest speaking, and speaking with you all here in this fantastic magazine, I find to be rather cathartic and brings on fresh ideas of what and where I wish to grow to from here.

What projects are you working on right now?

Fashion weeks around the world, starting a new career with Qantas, still having the satisfaction after 38 years in my sports therapy practice of helping people achieve a pain-free life, writing a book, creating a new pageant system, and just being content with having my beautiful friends and opportunities in abundance.

What would you still like to attempt in your career?

A cover in New York, Paris, and London and just continue to be happy with where I sit right now.

What advice would you give to those hoping to follow in your footsteps?

Know who you are and what you want, and if at any time you feel bullied or let down, know your own worth and don’t let anyone put you down. Grow as I have, stand up for yourself, apologise if needed, and know in your heart that lessons have been learned and never need to be revisited again.

Meet The Woman Behind The Cover Of The Latest Issue Of GEQ Magazine: Rukeshma Lata Sharma

Rukeshma is the current Mrs. Universe Fiji Official. A high teacher by profession, in the last 20 years in Australia, Rukeshma has supported many migrants, refugees, and International Students with their English language skills and looking after their welfare needs at the same time. She also spends her time volunteering for several organisations, such as the Rural Fire Service and Meals on Wheels to name a few.

She is also the founder and president of a charity organisation called Global Women where she raises funds for Breast Cancer research and Beyond Blue. This organisation aims to focus on women’s health and well-being, and she seeks to educate, encourage and empower women through her platform. She is also a host for International Woman’s Day and was awarded the Emerging Woman Award in 2021.

Rukeshma is an experienced ramp and print model. She recently came in the top two at the Wonders of Women, Fashion Modelling, and Pageantry Awards, where she was awarded the Woman of Champion award at WOW awards in 2021. She is a fashion model for Lavashe Couture, showcasing their Island range of designs at shows. She is also a model for Luekbook, showcasing their clothing for plus-size women from sizes 14 and upwards. Prior to this, she has been with Allure and Attitude, where she has showcased designers such as Punjabi Trends and Kaur Collections. An avid traveller and spending family time are things she likes doing, away from her very busy life.

GEQ magazine recently caught up with Rukeshma to discuss her journey in the industry, and here’s what went down:

How did you get into the pageant industry?

I got into the pageantry industry by participating in the Curves and Curls International pageant. From there, I was unstoppable and participated in many pageants after that.

How were you actually ‘discovered’?

I was a ramp model for an ethnic collection and participated in a sari competition before pageantry. Several people recommended me to the pageant director as a prospective candidate, and I was discovered into the world of pageantry.

What has been the most memorable experience of being in the pageant industry so far?

The most memorable moment in pageantry so far was when I was crowned Mrs. Universe Fiji Official. This was a pageant that I thoroughly enjoyed because of the director’s professionalism and the wonderful friendships developed with other queens.

Who have been the most interesting people you’ve met so far?

I have met some very beautiful queens in the industry that are really genuine. Mentors have supported older queens like me, and I would like to mention Sue Turner, who has always listened to and encouraged us in the best way possible.

What has been the most valuable lesson you’ve learned while in the pageant industry. This can be about the industry or about yourself.

I have learned that a queen is not defined by having a sash and crown but by the work she does with her title, which truly defines her—using her title as a platform and advocacy to make a difference for other women and young girls in our society.

Working in an industry whose only emphasis is on the outside characteristics of a person, how have you stayed grounded?

I believe in my capabilities and never lose focus that outside characteristics do not define a true queen. There are younger queens in pageantry, but I always believe that the young queens can learn a lot from older queens because of their wisdom and holistic approach to everything, as I find most queens are very self-centered and it’s all about them.

I remain grounded as I am committed to making a difference to other queens through mentorship or the broader community through my charity organisation, Global Women.

Is your family supportive of you being in the pageant industry?

Yes, most definitely. They admire my courage and passion for being involved in pageantry in my fifties. They cannot always attend the events due to work and study commitments, but I know I have their full support.

What are your future plans? Inside pageantry or out of it.

My future plan is to continue using my title to make a difference in this world. I would like to take on more of a mentorship role and organising of pageants rather than participating in future.

Introducing The Entrepreneur Behind The Cover Of The July 2022 Issue Of Global Elite Entrepreneur Magazine: Guruji Shrii Arnav

Download Now

In a major scoop, Global Elite Entrepreneur magazine was able to get in touch with the Grandmaster and Guru of Gurus- Guruji Shrii Arnav, for a no holds barred interview.

The revered and beloved Guruji Shrii Arnav is the father of Astro Gemology and an internationally acclaimed spiritual Guru who uses techniques based on spirituality, Astro Gemology, and modern management methods – he’s a mentor to statesmen and millionaires.

The author of the Magnum Opus” Secrets of Jyotish Gems” (translated into six languages), he is the mentor of the world’s largest E-commerce portal to buy natural Gemstones online (Gemstoneuniverse.com). The website has a mind-boggling reach of 4 million monthly users and has been around since the early days of the Internet in 1996.

From consultants to start-ups as well as superstars, we’re pretty confident our readers will enjoy straight-from-the-heart candid answers from the man who is in the business of changing lives for the better.

Guruji, congratulations on winning the Best Thailand Personality of the Year 2021 award! How does it feel? What was the process for you to find what you wanted to do?

I am very honoured, and a bit surprised in equal measure. To win an award of this magnitude and being the first foreigner and non-Thai person to win this award is very humbling.

I dedicate this award to all human beings who consciously think of their fellow men; yes, they still exist. Thank God for that.

As far as finding the process of what I wanted to do was fairly simple.

I did not want to do anything nor had a step-by-step plan. I just do what I like to do and by which I can make a difference.

Once I had complete confidence in my guru and absolute faith in his words, there was no confusion.

This was further cemented by the feedback I received from people who engaged and interacted with me. That I can positively contribute to their lives is an added reinforcement.

A Beautiful Poignant Moment from Guruji Shrii Arnav’s Birthday

What has been the most memorable experience of being in the Gemstone industry so far?

At Gemstoneuniverse and in my life in general, we are blessed with many memorable experiences every day, so singularly pointing out a single experience would be difficult.

However, last night I was recounting the experience of one man who was suffering from Psoriasis. It was both an uncomfortable and distressing situation for him.

After trying out conventional allopathic treatment with no measurable difference (No improvement – the Psoriasis was manageable) and not cured, he sought my advice.

I advised him to wear a Natural Pearl and Coral combination, massage with a specific herb-infused oil, and listen to a certain audio frequency for 6 minutes daily.

By the Grace of God, his situation improved by nearly 70% within eight weeks.

In addition to improving his condition, the remarkable change in his confidence and attitude was very satisfying.

I am also pleased that gracious people with their names and designations share their experience with Gem therapy and other combination therapies on video at Gemstoneuniverse. You can view them in our testimonial section or on social media pages.

The Grandmaster casts a Vedic Horoscope & Position of Planets as per date, place, and time of birth to reveal amazing details of a Person’s Life and Destiny

It was amazing to see that Global Personalities like Donald Trump Jr., Sporting superstars like Carl Lewis, and other celebrities wish you such warmth on your birthday. Who have been the most interesting people you’ve met so far?

Every person I meet is a superstar, a seed with the potential to be a giant, and I am blessed to meet people from all walks of life.

From a milkman to a conglomerate owning a major dairy operation, from a motorcycle mechanic to a conglomerate manufacturing engine for the latest cutting-edge aircraft – I meet all sorts of fascinating people.

That phenomenal people with rare accomplishments decided to surprise me for my birthday, and it was indeed a special gift.

However, as I said, I love and respect every individual who wishes to engage and interact with me, and I am nonjudgemental. I do not classify them with the tags that society gives them. That is the only way I can give them my best and bring out the best in them.

What makes your company different than your competitors?

I actually like this question, so I am quite glad you asked me that.

From my standpoint, we are NOT a company.

We are an organization and a movement driven by excellence and values of compassion. Our motto is “Patron Benefit first, and profits are a by-product.”

We love Gem Therapy, we love and respect the ancient spiritual sciences, and we love our patrons. Those individuals from more than 70 nations actively engaging with us is a testimony to the impact of Gemstoneuniverse.

As far as competitors are concerned, I would like to believe and practice that we are our own competition and strive to be always in a state of Kaizen.

We are not cut, copy, and paste masters but inspired scientists and artists.

And till we stay in a constant state of relentless innovation and pursuit of knowledge, we will not have to bother about the so-called competition.


Guruji Shrii Arnav receiving the Best Thailand Personality of the year award 2021.

Your social media posts are quite good and they deliver so much value. People eagerly look forward to meeting you in the Humans of Gemstoneuniverse program. How does one seek your mentorship or be your disciple?

I feel happy that I can deliver some unique value to the amazing people who interact and like to assimilate my posts or the information I share.

This primarily shows two things:

The vast range of avenues available to us to lead a better life and find solutions to our problems, and second, there is no one size fits all solution to problems.

Unique DNA, unique people, and unique methods of life optimization.

Yesterday in my Facebook post, I said I had a problem with the word mindset.

How can a dynamic MIND be SET? That is an absurdity. I was asked to simulate an interview-like situation and to get hired by specifying five words or less about myself. That was a cathartic life-changing exercise for some.

I also said if you are still looking for some course or mindset, etc., as part of your vocabulary, then there is still time to seek me out.

Once the individual is ready, nature automatically connects us. That is the magic and miracle of life.

You advise some of the biggest corporations and individuals on finance and investment. What is your take on bitcoin, cryptos, NFT, etc.?

Whatever the economic situation, one should stick to basic solid foundation rules that always deliver.

God’s currency is land, gold, silver, Gemstones, and knowledge – these will never give a negative return despite COVID, stagflation, recession, depression, or whatever fancy words so-called experts throw at you.

Be conservative rather than greedy, and let the power of compounding do wonders for you.

For young entrepreneurs and individuals, a good primary goal is to have extra funds for one whole year in case you won’t be doing anything.

If you can calculate your yearly burn and work towards having that in reserve, you will automatically have excellent learning and practice, which should be enough.

Guruji Shrii Arnav appointed as the Mentor and Head of Strategy of Udon Thani Football club.

Your life is a roller coaster with so many fascinating things happening. What are your big-ticket items for 2022?

I think the primary focus now is on the Gem Art, ensuring that Gem supply and pricing remain stable and cutting-edge alternative healing centres including working with sacred herbs including legalized Cannabis (Smiles). I cannot say more at his juncture, and my heartfelt regards and best wishes to your team and readers. Stay well and Stay Blessed.

Meet The Rising Star Behind The Cover Of The July 2022 Issue Of GEQ Magazine: Cleopatra Fitzgerald

Download Now

New York City powerhouse Cleopatra Fitzgerald is a philanthropist, experienced researcher, politician, writer, activist of causes, and celebrity/influencer. Fitzgerald is also an interfaith minister who can officiate weddings, funerals, and baptisms from all types of religions – she is able to work with the various ideas and beliefs of each religion.

Many will recognize the politician/influencer as an NYC Mayoral Candidate. She was awarded the Martin Luther King’s award for her leadership and fight against discrimination of all types. At first, she was a longtime Democrat; then for several years she became independent as a Republican, and then she eventually returned back to the Democratic Party in early 2021. Throughout the years, she’s been an active voice who has worked towards fixing broken systems. She has met with many of the city’s politicians, including the Manhattan Borough President, a U.S. representative, as well as a Senate candidate. She’s been featured on Twiplomacy’s Twitter accounts most followed by world leaders and has been invited to attend high-profile events such as George W. Bush’s Official President’s Dinner Invitation, Barack Obama’s World Leaders Forum/gathering at the Hilton Hotel, and President Trump’s inaugural celebration, opening of the campaign office for an Independence Party presidential candidate to name a few. If Fitzgerald ever decides to run for political office again, she will be doing so for the awareness campaign causes of global issues that matter to the populace.

Fitzgerald was born on February 16th, 1984 in Manhattan, New York City. As a teen, she took several theatre classes and spent time acting and playwriting while in college. She also graduated with a degree in political science. At one point Fitzgerald attended a music college and was invited to perform with her violin various times at the Lincoln Center. She wants to rescue preoccupied minds from doubts with compassion. Her passions are varied and dynamic. Fitzgerald has participated in art drawing, and her work has been featured in museums – in fact, at the age of 12, she drew and sculpted nude life models from both genders at the academy.

GEQ magazine recently caught up with Fitzgerald to discuss her journey in the industry and here’s what she said:

How did you get into the fashion industry?

Our families in general come from a variety of performing arts, arts, and diverse industries that value fashion in view of their hereditary traditions, aesthetics, social status, global ethnicity, and other components. Primarily, my participation in fashion was when I began studying a hobby “art and sculpture” at the academy and I started to design fashion sketches as a mode of art – my instructor was a fashion designer. I have studied the history of fashion and was accepted into a fashion institute but did not attend because I was already enrolled at another school with differing subjects. In high school, they offered designing classes and I took art classes. As a global celebrity and fashion model, I believe that fashion can be educational and anyone with devotion and inspiration can become a designer. In my fashion modeling, I have used fashion in diverse settings and for various front cover stories.

What do you like most about being a designer?

Designing is about mixing themes, historical eras, concepts, etc. The part I appreciate about fashion is that it is about the human senses to raise awareness, to resolve situations of the present and the future. Fashion gives shape and meaning to a design that can heal, and transform our globe with betterment and not as a world upside down with deficiencies and broken systems. We can see trending for instance: Fashion for the environment, political issues, charity, prevention of diseases and so much more.

Downside to being a designer?

The time can be somewhat of a downside for designers. Considering the time spent in putting together all elements of the design which are visual geometry, symbols, textures, and so forth that should be meticulously, and properly placed in order. Whatever the focus of the theme to be depicted it takes concentration and organization to produce a marketable product.

What has been the most memorable experience of being in the fashion industry so far?

I was in a Halloween pageantry and my topic was titled “The Masked Senorita Costume” -I did not have the sole thought that I was going to be selected. When the judges without even knowing who I was, rewarded me – that is how I increased my motivation by portraying with my fashion the multitude of cultures in the world.

Who have been the most interesting people you’ve met so far?

I have met many distinguished people in my life including those dearly departed and those I had the pleasure of meeting during different events. In the fashion industry, while I was part of the art house the previous principal and art-house director Ms.Needler introduced me to fashion designer Norma Kamali. Additionally, on the street, Steven Kolb happened to be passing by and we spoke for a while. Among these are countless others I had the pleasure of meeting.

What has been the most valuable lesson you’ve learned while in the fashion industry? This can be about the industry or about yourself.

The important lesson is that women, men, and children models in the fashion industry should not be exploited. Sadly, many models are subjected to unfair wages, rape, sexual trafficking, child abuse, health problems like anorexia, and further types of abuse. Hopefully, human rights groups, organizations, law enforcement, and investigative journalists have made the planet alert and laws are being passed.

Is your family supportive of you being a designer?

Yes, they are supportive because my mission is not for my own benefit it is for the public wellbeing.

If you could go back in a time machine to the time when you were just getting started, what would you do differently?

I am satisfied with my past – however, I believe that throughout my educational years up till now, we are still in need of school reform. When something was wrong in the schools, I contacted the principal, sergeant, and the educational authorities. Nonetheless, more should be done to prevent bias, discrimination, harassment, stereotyping, bullying, and crimes. The surveillance cameras, metal detectors, guards, and policies might solve a portion of the issue but there is an abundance of defects that keep on persisting.

What is the best advice you have ever been given?

I do not forget the plenty of honest people whose words of advice were truly uplifting. I even give credit to and thank critics as everyone is entitled to their own opinions. One of the most important pieces of advice I received was from my math teacher Mr. Greco who said, “never change the way you are.” Optimistic affirmations really make a difference.

What are your future plans? Inside your career or out of it?

Plans are continuous as long as there are causes to advocate for and learning from others is a lifelong process. “Cosmic Worlds” and “Causes” signifies that I am advocating for the world and cosmic issues which present new concerns as times keep on advancing. Thus, finding resolutions to recurring dilemmas.

Overall, Jojo’s vision and purpose in this endeavor are to have a bigger platform to introduce and promote his advocacies.

GEQ recently caught up with Jojo to discuss his journey in the industry, and here’s what went down:

What is something that sets you apart or makes you unique?

Two things make me unique. My experience and passion sets me apart from my contemporaries. Passion drives me to be hungry to improve and try new things. That passion makes me look for adventures and journeys that I would not necessarily take. That passion provides me the niche and courage to run after things that people think would be out of my reach. That passion gets me that experience that made me the person that I am today.

What would you talk about if you could speak on national television for 30 minutes?

If I could speak on national TV for half an hour, I would take the opportunity to talk about my advocacies. My advocacies include the following: (1) children and (2) Volunteerism. For the Children, I continue to support various charitable institutions and fundraise for Sydney Children’s Hospital and Cerebral Palsy Foundation. Overall, I have raised, and helped raise over $38,000 AUD for various organisations and charities I support. For about ten years, I have provided scholarship for the less fortunate in the Philippines to continue their college education.

One of the projects I have concentrated on is Community Service by Volunteerism. Volunteering is generally considered an altruistic activity where an individual or group provides services for no financial gain. Volunteering is often intended to promote goodness or improve the human quality of life. Volunteering may have positive benefits for the volunteer, and the person or community served. I highly believe that if our community comes together and volunteers, even for just a couple of hours a month under any charitable institution and non-profit organisation – it will make a positive difference in the personal and professional aspects of all individuals involved, especially oneself. Furthermore, I would like for the community to realise that volunteering is a social responsibility of all its members, especially for the marginalised and disadvantaged.

What are three goals you want to accomplish in 5 years?

In 5 years, I hope to complete my Master’s in Nursing Education, establish a Scholarship Foundation to support students to continue their University Education in Australasia, and probably settle down in my own house in Australia.

What do you want your legacy to be?

I want to be remembered as a person of passion who has lived my life in the fullness of serving others.

How do you try to make a difference in your community?

I believe that being a role model in the community is what we can do. Encouraging others to come out and volunteer their time to various charitable institutions and non-profit organisations is how I try to make a difference. As we all know, there are so many charity and nonprofit institutions that would like to help our community, and what lacks is volunteers. So let us all get out there and volunteer. Let us also encourage others to volunteer.

How do you define failure?

Personally, I define FAILURE as a stepping stone to achieving the goal you set. It’s quite cliché; however, it’s true. I learned not to dwell on the negative feelings that a situation brings; instead, find the positive in it and try to make it work to my advantage – the least you could do is write it off as experience and move forward.

How would you describe yourself in 1 word?

One word to describe me is PASSIONATE.

What is one thing in your life you would go back and change?

I would not change anything I have been through; however, if I could spend more time with my family, especially with my father, before he passed away, I would.

If you could wish for anything, what would it be?

If I could wish for anything, it would have to be more go-getter when I was younger.

Introducing The Entrepreneur Behind The Cover Of The March 2022 Issue Of InLife International: Kristina V Herreen

Download Now

When Kristina V Herreen was a little girl, she was always in trouble. She spent the first year of her life in hospital as she was born with heart disease. When she was finally brought home, she ended up becoming a handful to everyone around her.

When she was 14 years old, Kristina left home, lived on a farm, went to an agriculture school, and then studied university. Eventually, she became a counsellor and marketer, she got into health and fitness, and lots more. She discovered that she was the type of person that wanted to be around people and help people. Sitting at a desk for 8 hours was just not her thing. She has constantly been looking for that right fit for her all her life, but it felt like it was alluding her.

During that same period, Kristina gained a lot of weight and lost a lot of self-esteem, so that outgoing and fun girl she once was, disappeared. She started to listen to what others wanted for her instead of doing what she wanted for herself and her happiness. She started to have self-doubt, and with that, her self-belief was also on the rocks. It would take years before she was able to have the courage to rediscover and move back into that “me spot” after all, years of self-destruction and pain had made that a distant memory.

Kristina became very body-conscious and aware of her looks and weight, which affected her way of acting and connecting with people. She was raised to believe there is a specific order to life: get a government job, get married, have kids, get a dog, and then live happily ever after – but she had that inner calling telling her that she was here for something big, something that will help others, something that will make her special. So against all the odds, she has never stopped looking for that right vehicle to become that special person that she knew she could become.

When Kristina first came to Australia, she became a wife and a mother in a city she had never been to before. A city that was and still is, in many ways, very conservative. She found it very hard to connect with people socially. Life really changed for the better when she attended a business seminar one day and she had the opportunity to talk to the speaker. The speaker said to her, “You have an accent, and you are from a non-Australian origin, turn that into your advantage, what you have people would love to have.” That really made her think, and from that day, those words have always been on her mind to serve as a reminder whenever her confidence plummets.

Fast forward to today, and Kristina is now known as The Networking Diva. She’s the director at Diva Global Business Connections PTY LTD and FortunePi Holdings, where her position is a Wealth Builder, and she’s also a radio producer and host at Casey Radio 97.7FM.

InLife International recently caught up with Kristina to discuss her journey in the industry and here’s what went down:

What are you currently doing to maintain/grow your business?

Networking, networking, and more networking or, as some people prefer to say – connecting with people. For me, that is all about communicating and connecting genuinely with integrity and respect with everyone. Once you learn this skill, it will stay with you forever, and your referrals will start coming in floods as well.

What form of marketing has worked well for your business throughout the years?

My marketing has always been to build my network through personal networking, both in-person and online. Nothing beats the opportunity you have to connect with people from all backgrounds and with different needs and wants. I always say: “No connection is a waste of time,” and I NEVER throw away a business card – you never know where a connection can take you.

What social media platforms do you usually use to increase your brand’s awareness?

I have always been a fan of Facebook, and I am talking about personal profiles, not business pages or group pages. Once you find someone that sounds interesting or a friend of someone, your work has started to connect with them and to do it well. Remember, they have friends, family, cousins, parents, work colleagues, and so on, so who knows who would be interested in your business today or another day? Your business changes, and so do people, so find a way to reconnect with people; everyone will respect and remember you if you ring someone up just to see how they are going.

What is the toughest decision you had to make in the last few months?

I always wanted to support people with what they want to achieve so when the personal events, face to face, was in a quiet place for a while, I decided to become a Wealth Builder and to help people to improve their financial situation and to support them to move on with their dreams of their new home and/or their plans to invest for the future. Being a Networking Diva, that move was common sense to me as my network was already there, and I know how to build a great strong network, so this was just an extension to be able to help more people.

How has your business been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic?

To Network Face-To-Face was, for me being in Melbourne, a big challenge as most venues were closed for almost two years, and to network in the “traditional” way was just out of the question. I then adjusted my skills to how to Network online but with the same basic skills, and I know it works either way, as long as you are following a system, like anything in business – when having a system that works, you will stick to it, and that’s what I did. With or without a pandemic, “Your network will always be your Networth.”

How have you adapted your business operations in response to COVID-19 and its associated impacts?

I had to adapt to the current situation in the market to stay as a business owner, and I did that by restructuring my business the way I choose my prospects and demographics for my connections. That meant that becoming a Wealth-Builder with Fortune Pi Holdings was just an adjustment of my type of prospects and to learn another professional skill on top what I was already doing. Offering people a way to stay on top of their finances as a team member with a Fortune Pi Holdings has been challenging but also very exciting as I just confirm that excellent networking skills are a must in any profession where you deal with people that includes most of us. We are a company that prides itself on understanding customer needs and mapping those needs against a wide range of superior products we have available, which gives us a comprehensive edge in the marketplace. Rule No 1 when Networking: Networking is never about you; Networking is always about others!

What have been some of the most important lessons you have learned because of this pandemic?

I find that if you are panicking, getting too over analytical it will be very hard to join whatever is changing around you, and this pandemic was and still is a very big change for all of us. I still live by the motto of “Work with what you have, not with what you don’t have.” For example, being a Wealth Builder, I will work with what you have to get to what you want, and I find that a lot easier to deal with, whatever it would be, family, life, or business.

What do you hope to see happen in the near future for small businesses all over the world?

Unity, we are here to support each other. Greed doesn’t support anyone, and karma will look after those too greedy ones. Start Networking genuinely and professionally, which will help you all grow, flourish, and succeed in the way you desire. Learn how to be an excellent networker, which will improve your life in so many ways. I dream that we could build a networking system online, maybe Facebook course I like it, and then just support each other in any way we can. Remember, don’t waste a connection course you never, never, never know where a connection can lead!

What advice would you give to a newbie Entrepreneur setting up a new business in this pandemic?

Learn how to Network the proper way, find yourself a mentor or some sort of support on the way, and always remember to work with what you have, not with what you don’t have, and you will get what you want by helping others to achieve what they want. Be a problem solver, so don’t be afraid to “think outside the box” Be authentic, keep to the facts, and never stop learning. Last but not least, be a nice person, a nice human being and people will never forget you! Happy networking,
