I'm Rana

A transformative business advisor and founder, mother, and university professor dedicated to supporting women entrepreneurs to start, grow, and scale their dreams.

You can have it all. I can have it all. The modern woman can have it all.

Like a buzzword, we all say it. But do we believe it’s possible?

I believe it. The women in my programs believe it after they learn how society’s definition of “having it all” is – well, all wrong.

Having it all doesn’t mean having what society or your parents or even your partner think you should have. It doesn’t mean comparing your life against the measuring stick of other women. It doesn’t mean doing everything perfectly or even any one thing perfectly.

Having it all is about finding and fulfilling your own purpose. It’s determining and dictating your own version of success that may not align at all with the world’s definition. It’s being ridiculously happy – on your terms.

So, let me introduce myself again.
I’m Rana, and I believe you can, should, and will have it all. That begins with developing confidence and backing it with a plan to move toward your dreams. Let’s get started.
It All Began with a Billboard

As a business advisor, I channel nearly 20 years of real world marketing experience, the latest in data driven business theory, and timeless creativity to coach my clients on how to produce sustainable, profitable results.

I’m often asked, “Why are you so obsessed with marketing?”

Growing up as a young girl in Lebanon, I observed the rebirth of industry as billboards and advertisements were erected after war. I daydreamed about billboard designers’ creative processes. What was the motivation behind a slogan, graphic and campaign? How effective was it? One could say I was a marketing enthusiast before I even knew what marketing was.

In my family, business was not a favorable major for women. When I chose a career in marketing, my parents pictured me selling gadgets door to door from a suitcase. Imagine their shock! I wouldn’t be dissuaded; I knew I could translate my natural proclivity for marketing into a career.

That’s exactly what I did…
