63. Leap & Reap | Relationships 101 with Emma Wynne from The Single Wives

I recently came across a quote on Instagram that read: “Fall in love with taking care of yourself, in mind, body and spirit.” How true is this! Nobody can make us feel happy until we’re happy with ourselves first. Only then can we open our hearts and minds to finding our ideal partner. It’s just the way it is. Somebody who knows all about this is a woman who’s about to reveal her entire life on national television, and all for a good cause. Her name is Emma Wynne – a radio announcer and...

And when I think of Kolkata, the first thing that pops up is Mother Teresa, the world-renowned Catholic nun and missionary.

Mother Teresa throughout her life did so many wonderful things. One of her most famous quotes is,...

55. Leap & Reap | How To Get Merry

When I run talks and workshops in schools, or at youth organisations and events, one of the things I love to say to young people is that they’re never too young to achieve great things – age is no factor.

If a job or revolutionary career opportunity doesn’t exist, why not create it! There are so many young people doing extraordinary things. Emma and Carla Papas,...
