Readers of my blog and newsletter comment frequently, “Bill, you really meet some fascinating people.” I agree–and not only do I enjoy associating with dedicated professionals, I learn plenty from them. And then I share what I learn with you.
Through twitter I became acquainted with Dimitra Moore, based in Athens, Greece. In our “tweet” exchanges, I learned about her prior leadership roles in business administration and human resources management at multinational American companies. In fact, while directing a Supervisory Directors Meeting for the Ledra-Marriott Hotel, she heard this compliment from a participant:
“Dimitra, you are a powerhouse of energy.”
Yet she left corporate life, transitioning voluntarily from the hospitality industry to a home-based business. The result? She has reached the prestigious Platinum Team Leader level for SFI.
Through our e-mail exchanges, I noted that her work ethic remained remarkable. “It is ten to four in the morning here,” she wrote recently, “and I’ve been up training online for more than 10 hours.” She added: “Because all this work is for a very good cause, I don’t feel tired at all.”
For additional insight into Dimitra’s success formula, check these excerpts from SFI’s interview with her last November:
