It's 2016 and I'm undertaking my biggest challenge yet as part of my 50th Birthday Celebration and a tribute to We're Wearin' the World with Dhana. In the next 10 months I will be biking 1000 miles as I travel Northern California, France, India, Singapore and many other cities. Whilst I travel I will be sharing my stories of travel, insights and experiences along this journey as well as how we are connected to people and planet.
The mission of the Common Good Capitalism Movement (CGCM) is to spark a movement that shifts the current state of capitalism into Common Good Capitalism.

Throughout history as well as in present time, people go to the desert to reflect, search for meaning, be initiated into a new stage of life and seek visions. Perhaps it’s the arid and demanding environment with its radical temperature changes and minimal vegetation. Maybe it’s the quiet and solitude offered from the stillness.

Last August I took a trip I never imagined taking and it all started when a dear friend sent me an email on my birthday to join her on a journey. When I first read the email, my response was “why would I go to the Amazon Rainforest right now?” I was busy establishing my new life as an entrepreneur, author and speaker. A few days later, I read it again and started doing research. I learned that this trip was bringing a group of women together to learn about how women in the Achuar tribe in Ecuador was rising and a new program called “Jungle Mamas” that was focused on maternal health, my skepticism turned into intrigue.
