Her writing is evocative and expressive, taking the reader on a journey from desperation to hope to elation, and everything in between. But if Zhena's story of persistence and grit isn't enough, you also get lessons, exercises, and actionable tools that come from her experiences. And just the descriptions of the flavors and scents that she blended into her teas will instantly transport you to another world.
Most of all, this is a book that teaches us that we must believe, take action, and persevere, and actually shows us how. My favorite quote: "I had gone from making $10 an hour working for someone else to $7.50 working for myself." Every entrepreneur will relate to Zhena's experiences. I feel re-energized from reading her book, and am ready to make new leaps forward with her encouragement!
Her treks to the tea fields in Sri Lanka are steeped in beautiful transformation and spiritual awakening; infectious for certain. Two of my favorite messages from her journey are: "Give for the sake of honoring all life as sacred," and "We save each other by serving one another."
For me, the true heart of the story is the power of generosity: giving simply for the act of giving. May this be a lesson we all learn, apply, and live fully.
