MAYSHAD MAG interview With Eileen McDargh

By Eileen McDargh - Monday, January 14, 2019

Mayshad Magazine is an advocacy platform for empowerment which mainly focuses on empowering women, raising awareness and exploring a contemporary lifestyle.  Their tagline is "Be Who You Want To Be" and their content is both educating and uplifting.  I was delighted when I was approached for an interview and I'm excited to share it with you.

The questions I was asked included “As a motivational speaker, how do you keep yourself daily motivated to transmit your positivity to other individuals? Where does your passion come from?”, “In what ways does the relationship between a speaker and an audience sustain you, and in what ways does it not?”, “If you had to choose one empowering speech you could share with our Mayshad readers right now, what would it be?” and more. You can read the entire interview at https://bit.ly/2UHmHKW.
