Hello dear friends!

I’m going to keep this one short and sweet.

Surprising fact you may not know about me: I’m constantly scouring the interwebs for inspiring interviews.

I just love to hear from people who have really made something of their lives.

I find it inspires me, lifts me up when I’m feeling flat and re-motivates me to build my own success story.

So today I want to share with you five of my all time favorite videos.

Honestly, I’ve watched hundreds if not thousands of interviews and talks from inspiring people, but these five I’m sharing today are the cream of the crop, the best of the best, guaranteed to leave you tingling with excitement about what’s possible in your own life.

I hope you enjoy and are inspired to take one small step towards your own success in life, as a result of these incredible stories.

1. Oprah Winfrey on career, life and leadership

Oprah shares her career secrets including how she dealt with being a double minority (black woman) on her rise to success. She shares her tips on leadership, connecting to your intuition and following your ultimate calling in life. I have actually watched this entire 1 hour interview at least three times. That’s how good it is.

Duration: 1 hour 4 mins

2. Liz Gilbert: Success, failure and the drive to keep creating


Liz tackles the subject of how she dealt with the huge success of her book: Eat, Prey, Love and how she copes with the sobering thought that her biggest success is more than likely behind her. She shares candidly how it is possible to stay inspired by your vocation regardless of the amount of failure you encounter and her true definition of the word success.

3. Ariana Huffington: Thrive talk at google


A fascinating look at how the founder of the Huffington Post has managed to balance her hugely successful business with the rest of her life. Arianna shares how to avoid burn out, sleep deprivation and exhaustion while still achieving real success in your life and work.

4. Sara Blakely: SPANX CEO on writing your billion dollar story


Sara shares her super inspiring SPANX story including how she went from a fax machine sales person to a billion dollar businesswoman with no financial backing, or business experience. Learn this incredible woman’s secrets behind success including her very unusual upbringing on the topic of failure.

5. Michelle Obama interviewed by Oprah

The first lady shares the secrets behind her own inner confidence and how she deals with online haters. Regardless of your political views, this is a rare opportunity to be mentored by the woman ho coined the phrase “when they go low, we go high.”

Thank you so much for sharing the video. I love watching Liz’s short speech. The phrase ‘going home’ extremely touches my heart. Well, I am on my way ‘going home’ too now. It is a big decision afterall.


I wish to go back to school I can’t afford school
Be a mother with 4 children 👶🏽 I don’t have an other income besides my job


Thank you so much for these videos. My favorites are the Oprah interview and when she interviewed First Lady Michelle Obama. What precious moments in time. I received so much inspiration.


I agree Mary, These two are amazing!


Thank you so much for sharing these inspiring videos with us. You are incredible Zoe B. 🙂
I loved watching Oprah Winfrey on Career, Life and Leadership and Arianna Huffington. These two videos were my favorite.
The piece of advice that I got from these amazing ladies is to get to know what spiritual awareness is and always works towards increasing it.
Many of us seem to think that being spiritual means we have to be religious. Just because you aren’t directly affiliated with a specific religion doesn’t mean you shouldn’t strive to be more spiritual. The whole concept of spiritual awareness isn’t all about connecting with a higher divine power, but also connecting with nature and yourself. Once you have established this connection, you will see life from a whole different perspective. People with a highly developed sense of spiritual awareness are often less prone to depression, addiction, manipulation, and control. In addition, they generally understand what it means to be truly happy and know how to make better choices and decisions for them.
That is what ‘going home’ for me means: adding spiritual practice to my life.
Thanks once again Zoe. I was feeling a little flat but the videos that you shared with us helped to lift myself up.


SO happy to hear you were inspired by the videos Cleopatra! Thanks for sharing 🙂
