Why do I want to feature an inspirational person in my newsletter?

I want to feature people like Mylene who have crossed my path and touched my life, inspiring me toward greatness. Too many of us fail to see greatness in ourselves. Somehow, it doesn’t seem to matter what we have achieved; we often need others to point out to us how we excel. People display “greatness” by their attitude, their lifestyle, their choices, their actions… I want to recognize the people in my life who lead by example.

How did I meet Mylene?

I met Mylène when I decided to do a Body fitness competition. Mylène appeared to be a very grounded woman and really approachable. I have been fortunate to meet her and see her evolving in the Fitness world. She as won many competitions. I am impressed by her discipline and dedication. Theses are all the titles she won:
