Samara Zelniker believes in the power of mindfulness to change lives and businesses - a path that she has been actively pursuing in her own life for over a decade. She was always fascinated by people. Our similarities, our differences and essentially what makes us tick. Why certain people thrived while others remained stuck. More specifically, what makes us the way we are, and is it possible to evolve?
After graduating from the University of Western Ontario with a BA in psychology, she worked in the fashion industry for half a decade, where she learned all aspects of running a business. From sales to marketing, shipping and budgeting, she delved into the operations of fashion distribution, and soaked up all she could learn. With two entrepreneurial parents, her brother and herself often joke that growing up in their household was similar to receiving an MBA!
