Mozah bint Nasser Al Missned
Her Highness Sheikha Mozah is the SOPHISTICATED DIVA of the week. She is the driving force behind educational and social reforms in Qatar, by serving as a Chairperson of Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development; Vice Chair of the Supreme Council of Health; Sidra Medical and Research Centre; actively contributes to UNESCO and many more.
Her Highness embodies the “Superwoman” characteristics. She is a leader for all especially the minority (the children), promotes positivity through educational and social reforms, and defies social norms of what it means to be a woman today; most importantly what it means to be a Muslim woman in an Arab country. Kudos to Sheikha Mozah for breaking new boundaries for woman and becoming a positive role model to young women everywhere.
Some of her Accomplishments are:
1. 2010 #74 Forbes Power Women
2. Founded the Shafallah Center (center to aid disabled children)
3. Changing the perspective of how Arabic and/or Middle Eastern women are perceived
Side note: I love her outfits. She exudes glam, elegance, confidence and more. What it means to be a woman. You do not need to wear revealing clothes to look beautiful. Pure Inspiration!

So last week, I asked that you write down your financial goals for the future. This will be your fuel to obtaining what you want. Go ahead, and post them up somewhere you will always see it; whether that is on your mirror, your door etc. It will serve as a constant reminder of what you need to do to succeed.
What are the things or people holding you back from obtaining your goals?
Is it because:
1. You are not making enough money to pay bills and save
2. Do you try to save but then something always come up that you have to spend money on ?
3. Do you have a shopping addiction (you may or may not realize it) ?
4. Does money fly out your hand and you cannot account for it?
5. Do you have a “moocher” who you cannot say no too?
First off, make a budget worksheet to see what your expenses are. Be honest because you need to know where your money is going. There are many free budget excel worksheets that you can download from the internet. Pick one that fits your needs and populate. The truth might hurt, however it will provide you with a realistic view of your life. To ensure you did it correctly, use last month’s data and reconcile to your bank statements. Open another tab on the excel workbook and delete and/or reduce the items that you know are not necessary for your overall living. Compare numbers and imagine it going to one of your financial goals. Some may be able to have drastic savings and some not as much but no matter what it’s a start.
