Leora Edut is a Woman of the Global Community with a mission to improve the quality of lives for women and their families. Leora Edut is also one of our Listen Give Initiative Board Advisors.
Just about thirteen years ago, Leora Edut was in one of her classes where she chose in one of the most important moments of her life, she would be one of the top makeup artists in the world. Within one to two years, Leora was providing makeup and beauty for such people as Rihanna, Molly Sims and others. For Leora, makeup was not an egotistical career choice. Rather an opportunity for her to share with women how to experience and celebrate their own inner beauty, playful side and inner joy and share it with the world around them.
Leora had a yearning for more. In 2008, Leora started working with GEMS, an organization dedicated to supporting young women and girls who have experienced commercial sexual exploitation and domestic trafficking to exit the commercial sex industry. Leora did not stop there. Her work in makeup led her to create “The Art of Beauty Experience,” which teaches young women to celebrate their beauty through non-traditional art.
Leora knew for her to support other women, it was important o confront her own personal obstacles. Her belief, “Empowered Women Empower Women”. Leora began to realize; to the outside world she was making a big difference for others, but she had to ask herself the question, “Am I doing the same for myself? So she embarked on a personal journey of working with life coaches, business coaches, enjoying her own life, and having her own personal dreams comes true. What better way than to know first hand what she was creating for others was also possible in her own life. As she moved through her own personal journey, an epiphany came to her, now I am ready to take all that I have learned and experienced for myself to women in a new way. To have women enjoy one another, empower and really understand they too, will have their dreams be a reality by supporting one another. Goddess-On-The-Go was borne.
What is Goddess-On-The-Go? Goddess-On-The-Go is an opportunity for women to reconnect with their essential needs, so they experience their lives with a “full tank of gratitude and glow”. As women are the givers of life to the world, so often they give to others and forget to replenish within. Goddess-On-The-Go provides experts that are essential to the spirit of the Woman. Leora Edut created a safe place for women to learn about themselves and support each other.
When one is so often giving, it may be difficult to determine their own needs. With Goddess-On-The-Go, not only are you reconnecting to those essential needs, but you are present to what is important to you — what will motivate you; and whats even more inspiring about this environment — all the women enjoy being with each other. Listen Give doesn’t know about you, but how often do you have the opportunity to really immerse yourself in an atmosphere where a day filled with inspiration, connection and motivation for you to rejuvenate yourself within while enjoying the others around you to share it with?
It is often said that when one gives so much and allows themselves to receive as much, they are blessed. This year, Leora became the mother of a beautiful baby girl – one of her most private dreams is now a reality.
