My life has been quite a ride, especially these past few months. I have been blessed with so many exhilarating, inspiring, heart-feeling experiences and meetings that even my wildest imagination would have not been able to conceive on its own! I pinch myself everyday!
When I began my journey with Discover Out Loud, I decided to let my creativity run its course and direct me to where I needed to go. Evidently it required a lot of hard work, perseverance, faith and a big dose of humour – all so worth it because the sweat and tears led me to create my dream job.
I get to travel the world, stay at the most luxurious hotels, meet the most sought after taste-makers, eat the finest foods and drink the most exquisite wines. What more can a girl ask for?
If two years ago, you would have told me that in one day I would chat away with design icon Flavio Manzoni (Head Designer of Ferrari) and Ricardo Guadalupe (CEO of Hublot), but also do an actual lap in a racing car in Mugello, I would have called you crazy! Unimaginable!
The more I indulge in life and create opportunities the more I realize how much power we each hold, starting with the power of dreaming. It all starts with a thought, an idea then the rest is hard work, commitment, imagination, talent and certainly some luck. Everything can be learned if the drive and passion are there.
Diligence and drive are the Mottos by which all successful people live by, wether athletes, CEOs, scientists or artists. Nothing comes easy and that’s what I was reminded of this past weekend during the Ferrari Finali Mondiali.
FERRARI FINALI MONDIALI | HUBLOT
Every year, Ferrari organizes the Finali Mondiali in celebration of the end of the Grand Touring racing season. Clients and fans come together to share three days of total Ferrari bliss! The entire weekend is one huge bash.
And if you are a privileged guest like I was, unbelievable perks come with it – from doing a lap in a racing car, discovering the latest technologies and learning from the masters themselves – professional drivers and the brains behind Ferrari and Hublot!
HUBLOT TECHFRAME FERRARI TOURBILLON
Hublot and Ferrari began their “marriage” in 2011 and have now just entered their second phase together. From the beginning it was clear that this collaboration was based on the application of top technologies, research, innovation and of course Emotion. Together they designed features seen nowhere else before (i.e. La Ferrari Watch holding the world record of power reserve, Big Bang Ferrari and Techframe) designed for those devoted Ferrari and Hublot aficionados seeking emotions and power in every part of their life.
At the Finali Mondiali, Hublot had quite a sizeable if not dominant presence – its unmistakable colors drapped the circuit, its branded safety car ran all four races and fans could check out the latest products, namely the new Hublot Techframe Ferrari 70 Years Tourbillon Chronograph at the Pop-up store. And if lucky, they could ask Flavio Manzoni, Head of Design to share his story and explain how he integrated the mechanics and design of a sports car with the Hublot “engine” in mind.
I was surprised at how light and comfortable it was to wear it, even though it is clearly designed for men. I could easily sport it everyday 🙂
This is one of the experiences which I will never forget. From the Hublot and Ferrari teams to the drivers, everyone made an indelible impact. My experience and encounters reinforced one thing: no one wins by not playing! The same rules apply to driving a race car, to designing a car or a watch or to simply win at the art of life. And age is only a number which does not define or limit us – the majority of the drivers there began to race later on in life to fulfil their life-long dream and passion.
Perseverance. Dedication. Discipline. Passion.
