The Ultimate Guide to Living Your Best Life

What comes to mind when you hear ‘brave up’ and ‘live your best life’?

Here at Fikiri Impact, we associate those phrases with…

  • defining success for ourselves
  • treating ourselves (foibles and all) with kindness
  • taking responsibility for, and control of, our careers
  • speaking up even when we’re afraid…especially when we’re afraid
  • choosing our accountability partners – people who inspire us and kick our butts when we are letting our goals down

And most of all, we are a community of people who inspire and encourage each other to bravely go after our big hairy audacious dreams. Without apology.

Our Mission and Vision

To inspire and encourage each other to go after our big hairy audacious dreams

Tagline

Be brave and live your best life yet!
