Why Should You Listen to Nafissa Shireen?

  1. Nafissa changed her career from being a professional accountant in the Oil and Gas industry to becoming a entrepreneur and an income growth expert.

  3. She talks about equine-assisted coaching and her focus on the entrepreneurial mindset in her coaching sessions.
Every time a challenge comes up in our life, we are being given an opportunity to shrink or grow. Sometimes stepping up isn't easy, but shrinking back isn't easy either. Pick your hard. @NafissaShireen #entrepreneurship #choice Click To Tweet
