That small person in the brown jacket is me!
I look so small – like I don’t belong in that Moscow open air market on a cold November day, in post-Soviet Russia.
So what was I doing there?
This photo was taken in the late 90’s while I was studying in Moscow. I wanted to connect with locals, so I signed up for Aerobics classes! 💃🏻🏃🏻♀️🤸🏻♀️
I started going everyday & built up such a great bond with my aerobics ladies that they asked me to train them to be instructors (I had already been a certified professional for many years). So…
- I met and trained hundreds of amazing women all over the former USSR.
- I created, ran, & sold my very 1st training business in a country and during a time where women were not “treated equally…”
- I celebrated March 8th for the 1st time!🤗
Am so grateful to have had this experience. Being supported by a group of smart & persistent Russian ladies taught me to never give up & never take no for an answer! 😉
Always believe that anything & everything is possible.
PS: I was in the market sourcing materials to build fitness equipment! Not selling sausages!😁
