Excitedly checking out photos from the latest Rebellious photoshoot. I stumble upon this picture. Gorgeous sunrise, soft colors, the waves; it is as if I can hear the ocean. Then there is me, my signature hair bun, a favorite outfit blending with the beautiful background, my new favorite lip color gloss. Then I crack up! Because my eyes fall upon my ‘bass’. Man, it surely does get attention.
The old me would have been kind of horrified. The new me is smiling in gratitude.
…. Then the thought of this blog came upon ….
If you have read my story and how I got into fitness, you know it was because of my growing curves and me being bullied for my ‘big butt’. This butt is what got...
Dad had arrived here a few months earlier. He was invited as an exchange scientist at University of Georgia Department of Biochemistry.
Couple of months later, mom, my brother and I made the flight across the ocean. It was supposed to be a 6-month trip. This was 28 years ago.
Dad was a dreamer. In communist Bulgaria, he would make the bold statement that one day he will take his family to the U.S.A. Some people laughed, others politely smiled.
When he decided to bring us all here, most thought he was insane. Life savings spent to buy 3 airline tickets. Leaving close extended family behind. Coming to a new country with "safety" guaranteed for other 3 months. What are you thinking?!?
The old me and new me have...

As the entrepreneurial journey got going, I had to ask and answer a few fundamental questions:
Who am I? Why do I think and behave the way I do?
There was much digging into my childhood. Tell me about your childhood. Hm! I can’t remember anything really traumatic or off from my childhood. If I had to pick one word to describe my childhood, it would be ‘happy’.
The question kept coming over and over. I realized it wasn’t just ‘bad’ things that taint our subconscious thinking. Little words said in love or repeated had a way of waiving a story I was tangled in.
Tell me about your childhood … I have dug, and dug and dug … kept wondering if I am missing something big …
As the world was losing its cool over COVID-19, I find myself (shockingly!) calm and productive. I know I have all the personal growth work I did over the past couple of years to thank. As the entrepreneurial journey became turbulent, self care was my stoic pillar!
So what did I do during the COVID-19 quarantine? I birthed an online program based on my personal and real-life transformation … However, before I tell you about the program…..
Let me tell you the story of a girl
Striving for perfection, control and constant rushing were a few of my best friends. They had served me well – I finished high school as a salutatorian, wrapped up undergrad with BBA in Finance with honors in 3 years, finished my MBA...
It is amazing what awareness, in any aspect, can do for one.
Never in a million years did I imagine the life journey that the decision to be an entrepreneur would put me on. Naively, I thought it will be a simple matter of having a new job. I have education, I have experience, I gathered guts to make the big move...
They ask me: What are you going to tell your daughter? That you left a successful corporate career to be a Pilates teacher?
Yes, that is what I am going to tell her. I will also tell her that this is what I love doing. I will teach her about PURPOSE and CHOICES.
They ask me: Are you going to tell her you left an office job to be touching people’s feet?
Yes, that is what I am going to tell her. I will also tell her that while I am correcting those feet, I am impacting people’s wellbeing & life. I will teach her about PERSPECTIVE.
They ask me: Will you tell her that you could have been a corporate CFO but you chose to be an entrepreneur?
