The amazing Na'ima B. Robert is in the guest chair today!

As an outgoing, successful, confident, adventurous veiled Muslim woman,Na’ima shatters stereotypes wherever she goes and encourages audiences to address their preconceptions, strip away their prejudices and open themselves up to a transformational experience.

As an award-winning author, entrepreneur, coach and motivational speaker, she has touched the lives of thousands around the world.

From keynotes in London, to speaking tours across South Africa, to capacity stadiums in Malaysia and Nigeria, her signature style of delivery - poetic, energetic, honest and raw - has set her apart as a keynote speaker, coach and trainer.

She is the award-winning author of the bestseller, 'From My Sisters' Lips' and founding editor of 'SISTERS', the magazine for fabulous Muslim women. She founded SISTERS, the magazine for fabulous Muslim women in 2007 and went on to publish for ten years, touching the lives of thousands of readers and launching the careers of dozens of writers.

She has appeared on BBC's Newsnight, GMTV and on several BBC radio stations. Her work has been published in The Times Online and The Telegraph. She has been profiled in The Independent and Stylist Magazine as well as being a regular guest on Islam Channel, British Muslim TV and Salaam Media Radio.

Through her coaching programmes, she is dedicated to helping women with a message find their voice, tell their stories and make exponential income and impact as authors and change makers.

A mother of five children, she crafted a career as an author, specialising in diverse and multicultural children's books, as well as novels for young people and a groundbreaking memoir.

In a tragic turn of events, she lost her first husband of 15 years and became, all at once, a widow and the CEO of a company of 300 staff.

She credits this experience with the expansion and growth she has since experienced as a woman, as a mother, as an entrepreneur and public figure.

Na'ima is quite the trailblazer and shares a great deal on this episode.
