Elana Lian, Investment Director at Intel Capital

Before Victoria, I built up a wall inside to block off any painful memories. My definition of being strong was to deeply bury layers of feeling. I was so busy chasing success defined by the outside world that I felt disconnected from who I really am and I could feel that my liveliness was cornered and dwindling.

I wanted to be more authentic to myself. But I didn't know how. Victoria came recommended by a dear friend who I admire a lot. I almost didn't sign up because life just kept on getting busier and busier with my venture capital job and my nine year old son. Also the private, walled off me thought it unthinkable to talk about myself openly with a group of strangers. But a voice inside me, that wanted to be helped, was growing stronger than what was holding me back. I wanted to become my own best friend and I wanted to live life to the fullest.

I wish I had taken the journey with Victoria ten years ago to set a solid foundation and bravely go for what I truly desire.

Today, I finally feel rooted in myself. From a place of expansion, security, and self worth, I have freed myself. I am more connected with the emotions inside of me. Rather than denying and burying my feelings, I have learnt to go to them and hold myself there. I have learnt to be compassionate with myself in times of uncertainty, hardship, or frustration. One huge takeaway is to apply what I have learned with my son. My goal is to be more aware of my son's emotions, really see him, and accept them with compassion.

Victoria is life changing. I feel that she has shortened my personal development journey by a decade easily. Don’t overthink it, just do it with Victoria.

She is wise beyond her years. We have ten women in our sisterhood. She connects with each of us deeply and holds space with compassion for all that are in the shadow. Victoria truly cares. That's what differentiates her to be the greatest. I couldn’t help but wonder "how does she have so much compassion to give?" She truly exemplifies a full glass that's overflowing with her brilliance and care.

Not for the faint-hearted, this is a journey inward. If you have a voice inside that wants to be unstuck, freed, live with ease and purpose, become the best version of yourself, this is for you.

I have realized that it's never too late to invest in myself. I look forward to spending the rest of my life more and more in expansion.
