Let me wish you a warm welcome, my dear Reader!
In the last couple of years, I’ve received a lot of messages and e-mails from my friends, readers and students who would like to read my personal stories. They said it would be a great idea to tell my stories and give encouragement to those who would like to make their dreams come true and reach their goals. Maybe they don’t know how, or they don’t want to take the first step toward their dreams.
Well, this is just one reason why I am starting my blog now.
I had a blog before and I was writing it for 2 years, but I didn’t have enough time and energy to continue, so I just stopped. It was a rather professional blog about my fitness life. This one will be a more personal blog, full of stories about my American life, my dreams, my work, my weekdays, my meetings, etc.
I would like to give you courage with my advice!
Right now, I am writing my second Hungarian personal book. The last one will be available within a couple of weeks in Hungary, in the Hungarian language.
Just a brief note about me:
I was born in Budapest, Hungary, and grew up in a small village. I immersed myselt in American studies, as well as marketing and business studies, both in English and German. I have a journalism degree and several American fitness diplomas, too.
I work in Media and in the Fitness industry, as well.
I was working as a journalist for 10 years in Budapest, Hungary. I was an editor and journalist for several big magazines. Right now, I am the owner and editor-in-chief of the American-Hungarian Journal, and also work for 2 American magazines here in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.
I have been in the fitness business for 20 years. It is probably hard to believe, but I was an overweight teenager. I now work as a fitness model! It wasn’t easy to became a fitness model. It is about a lot of work, exercise, learning, nutrition programs, lifestyle changes, exercise plans, and self-confidence. I am proud to say that I was a sports model for Andre Agassi in Las Vegas, 2 years ago.
I am the President and CEO of the Body ’n’ Soul Wellness Academy. We have centers in different cities in Europe and are opening new centers this summer. I developed my program named Spine Balance Training. This program is based on Yoga, Pilates and Tai Chi movements. Additiionally, I made my DVD and wrote my book in Las Vegas.
I have been travelling between Europe and the United States for 19 years. I started to study in English 21 years ago, because I had a dream. My dream was to travel to the United States. My first trip was to Atlanta, Georgia. I stayed for 2 months with an American family and those 2 months were amazing!
I learned so much and had many beautiful experiences.
I have a lot of friends here in Las Vegas. I love the United States so much! I love the positive attitude, the positive energy, the American lifestyle. I love the open-minded people and the American culture.
How did I start my American life? How could I reach my goals? Where am I going; what kind of meetings do I have; how do I spend my free time; what do I do for living? I will write about these topics and much more.
I am planning to write my blog 2-3 times a week. I hope I can give you some suggestions, advice and courage to reach your goals, dear Reader.
I hope it will be a very interesting blog…..it will show how I went from a European country girl to a Las Vegas businesswoman.
Please send me your questions, comments and letters. I am looking forward to them!
