Segment 1

The show opens with quotes from Abraham and the Universe dealing with fate versus probability, perspective and living our lives day-to-day, enjoying the journey on the way to our goals. Sam introduces the guest of the show, Monique Blokzyl, who talks about her upbringing in Eastern Germany, the socioeconomic atmosphere being hostile towards entrepreneurial types, sifting through her educational background and the start of her career at IBM, and how a few tragic circumstances led to her departure from the corporate world and how she arrived at her current line of work.

Segment 2

Monique reflects on her corporate experience and how a growing dissatisfaction led to her career shift into what she feels is a more fulfilling and expressive profession, getting to these conclusions through finding out what she truly loves to do and thinking about what impact she wants to leave on the world.

Segment 3

Monique analyzes the different reactions people have in wake of the pandemic. The conversation opening from a dialogue about fear, the range of them being from panic to contentedness (surrendering), Monique encouraging people to rise out of the mindset of the latter, to embrace opportunity where you can find it and not just sit and wait it out, falling into the fallacy that these things are just completely out of our control. 

Segment 4

Monique talks about all of the opportunities one can take advantage of in these times, especially in terms of how people can push their businesses and ideas forward and expanding one’s knowledge and skillset. She promotes her ‘Heart Powered Global Nation’ that goes more in-depth with the messages she shared on today. The show closes with Monique’s final thoughts, her methods of contact and her business mantra.
