Soulaima Gourani dedicates her life to improving the lives of others. She helps people and companies shine by helping them unleash their enormous potential and find their real talents, purpose, and passions. And it all started when she was fired from my job while pregnant and expecting her first child back in 2007. At the time she noticed no one wanted to hire pregnant women. This inspired her to start her own business – her need for personal and professional freedom.
“I needed to create a sense of control over my own life. I never wanted to get fired again and have another organization take control of my life. I’ve also always hated organizations that are too “structured.” As a result that led me to co-write the bestseller, “Unboss”, because I felt like there was a need for organizations that were more independent and “free spirited," States Soulaima.
