088: Make Your Intentions A Daily Habit - Magda Khalifa

Work From The Inside Out

Magda Khalifa is a first-generation American, US Army combat veteran, business owner, speaker, and best selling author of her memoir, American Dream, Discipline, Resilience, Endurance, Adaptability, and Mentorship to Succeed and Win in Life. After witnessing the attacks in New York City on September 11, 2001, she left her comfortable, white-collar professional life behind to join the military. After two tours in Iraq, Magda struggled with transition and health issues.  Magda succeeded in turning her life around and shares her success path through “The Freedom Triangle”, her 3-step framework: inventory your life, key in on what is missing, and pull up the anchors that are holding you back, enabling you to grow from limited to LIMITLESS. Magda continues to inspire and guide people by speaking about her unique story, perspective, and example of no excuses, all in tenacity and grit.  In this week’s Work From The Inside Out podcast, learn about Magda’s journey: Magda talks about how she felt like a completely different person upon returning from Iraq; rather than her usual outgoing self, she was lethargic, reclusive, anxious, and depressed. She felt so lost, yet began to feel better as she became involved in a few nonprofit organizations that served veterans, where she learned she was not alone and could find a sense of purpose through service to others. Magda has launched the first combat veteran-owned fragrance line, Triangle Fragrance, featuring confidence for women and victory for men. Ironically, when she was 9 years old, Magda sold Avon products door-to-door and continued to do so into her teens. How enterprising! I still recall the jingle… ding dong, Avon calling!
