When you head out into the unknown, to see the world or even for a business trip over the pond or for a night out in Paris, there is always a chance that boarding your airplane will take longer than you think. At some point, I stopped counting the hours between flights and start looking at ways of enjoying that magic time, when you are not on London time, nor Singapore time, but on your own time.
At first, my books turned me into a travel fanatic, jumping from one airline to another, from one town I never visited before to the next conference and back to the next red-eye flight, same night…For years I travelled from one continent to another and spend endless hours on hundreds of terminals, relaxing on those posh lounges… Before I retired and start writing books, I developed a certain skin sensibility and as much as I love reading, I have to avoid contact with any chemicals, even the newspaper’s ink will be a bad idea, and the only option left while waiting to board next flight, was browsing through magazines for hours!
After opening thousands of magazines with stunning pictures, from lipstick that reminds you of Rembrandt and Manolo Blahnik’s shoes to die for, from private jets and luxury mansions, I start wondering, where are the people behind these exquisite products, where is the story?
My travels turned me into a Storyteller
While thinking that perhaps I am not the only one missing the kind of magazines that wear a beating heart in their sleeves, magazines where you could actually read about real people, and feel inspired, the idea of a magazine that connects you with the real story of people who live an extraordinary life, start growing into a vision, then into a business plan, and eventually, my love affair with books and travels turned me into a storyteller…Imagine, magazines where each page tells you a story you never heard before…
I’ve met so many amazing men and women, true givers, serving their family, their community, a great cause or driven by their passion, and yet, they don’t feel worthy of any recognition, do not know how to receive the recognition they deserve. Perhaps, the thought of receiving a simple thank you would make them feel very uncomfortable, to say the least.
Here we are, offering you a magazine that tells you a story on each page! Don’t tell anyone, but my wildest dream is to inspire you to share your own story next…
