An Easy Way To Help Girls Living in Poverty Manage their Periods

Many of these girls currently miss school for the entire week of their period, every single month, putting them at an even greater disadvantage in life. We have a goal to provide every girl in the village of Saoli, India who currently has her period (about 1,000 girls) with a period kit which includes 6 Read More

Making a Small Dent in Reducing Plastic on Our Planet

Our home in Puerto Rico is in Palmas del Mar, which is a large gated community that feels more like a tiny town.  In February of 2019 I set out on a mission to get a recycling program throughout Palmas (currently there’s only one in a small section), and to make Palmas PLASTIC FREE! No Read More

Great Things Are Never Achieved Alone

Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have A Dream” speech was more than just a speech – it was an iconic, transformational moment in human history. It was a speech that’s now permanently embedded in our hearts and minds. And, here’s something you might not know: Dr. King didn’t write that speech all by himself. He Read More

The Pain & Beauty of Our Human Experience

I love learning about history through stories of everyday people living, growing and navigating through it. I only vaguely knew what apartheid was until reading Trevor Noah’s book – Born a Crime – which was a collection of fun, hilarious, heart-breaking, riveting, inspiring stories from his childhood growing up a “colored” boy in South Africa Read More

Our New Life in Puerto Rico

We made a BIG dream come true. For years we’ve been dreaming about having a winter home near the ocean. We scouted out options from Mexico to Bali looking for the perfect location… and last year we settled on the magical island of Puerto Rico. This is some drone footage my hubby took of our Read More

Do You Nurture Yourself?

Heidi DeCoux

Don’t you hate it when you go to a party and eat a ton of not-so-healthy food, or maybe have a few too many drinks and feel terrible afterwards? You have a great time at the party but that over-indulgence hangover is the worst. I threw my husband a birthday party last Saturday and decided Read More

How To Quickly Get Into The Flow (aka The Zone)

Do you ever struggle to get in the flow?  The Flow (aka The Zone) is when you’re so hyper-focused that you’re able to accomplish a TON of quality work quickly. It’s my favorite way to work.  I’m crap at multi-tasking, but I’m at pro hyper-focusing. Vishen Lakhiani, founder of Mindvalley University, recently sat down for Read More

Birthday Bash

We used Farukh’s birthday this year as an excuse to enjoy the last bit of summer by having good friends over for some good food, good drinks, and great conversations on the terrace. We were having so much fun that we ignored our phones and only took a few quick not-awesome pics (those are generally Read More

Book Review of I’ve Been Thinking

Heidi DeCoux

On our 4-hour flight from JFK to San Juan I read Maria Shrivers new book… I’ve Been Thinking . . . Reflections, Prayers, and Meditations for a Meaningful Life — and I highly recommend it. In the intro, Maria writes: “This book has but one purpose: to get you to think about what constitutes a Read More

Fail Often & Fail Fast

Fail Often Fail Fast

I recently wrote a letter to one of my nieces who was scared of going for something she really wanted because she thought she may fail. Here’s part of that letter… I have a few things to say about failure. Did you know that Venture Capital Investors, known as VC’s, plan on losing 9 out Read More

Heidi DeCoux

It’s our 2-year anniversary (yay! I love you baby) and our wedding photographer/videographer just sent us the highlight reel video from our 3-day BIG FAT Indian Wedding! This baby could win an award for CHEESIEST wedding videos EVER. Farukh and I were laughing so hard we had tears streaming down our faces. It could easily Read More

Renovating Our Home

We purchased this home six months before we got married and renovated it while planning our BIG fat Indian wedding, AND while flipping another house, doing a major launch in one of our businesses, plus we purchased another business… all in a six month period. Suffice to say, those were the busiest 6 months of Read More

The Baa Foundation

. The Baa Foundation is a charity we started with Farukh’s mom, Raziya.  We self-funded it for a few years, and then set it up as an official non-profit in 2018 so that we could accept tax-deductible donations from friends and family and use them to expand the work. 100% of every dollar donated goes Read More
