I had a wonderful visit with two members from the Chaldean Cultural Center on Wednesday of last week. The executive director, Weam Namou, and the videographer, Michael Nafso visited me to talk with mom and I about my books and life story!📚
We had a wonderful time and they took a lot of ‘B-rolls.’🎞🎬🎤
Here are some images I shared at the event below:
During their visit, we discussed the accident I had in 1994, how I survived though my faith, and walked again. We discussed my dad’s work in Baghdad and what he did after transitioning to the US. We discussed my experience as growing up chaldean. My mom was also interviewed and spoke in her native language of “sureth.” Here are some more photos from the day below:
“The Chaldean Cultural Center (CCC) was established in February of 2003. A goal of the committee was to build a museum that covered over 5,000 years of history. They wanted to preserve our unique heritage and make it known to future generations of Chaldeans as well as to the public.
The CCC has provided various youth and adult programs such as public forums, lectures and discussions, book and film programs, exhibits, and publications. The Museum didn’t open until May of 2017. The Museum expanded the programs to include in-depth tours for academic intuitions, schools, churches, temples, and summer camps.”

I had the greatest time at “Living Legends of Entrepreneurial Marketing” at Carnegie Hall in New York this past weekend! No words can describe it. It was a three day conference, but like none I have ever been to before! It went beyond my expectations.
Ice-T & his wife, Coco, Martha Stewart, and other speakers were there! Steve Larsen (the funnel hacker, whose built 500 funnels for Russell Brunson), Walter O’Brien (Scorpion, the ‘smartest man in the world’), Dylan Howard (Chief editor of the National Enquirer, Chief content officer of American media), Hal Elrod (best-selling author), Micheal Gerber, Alex Mandossian, and Jerry Greenfield (of Ben & Jerry’s), who served me with a scoop of butter pecan ice cream, were all there!
I was a VIP at the event, and more TV and radio personalities attended along with actors and writers, there were even ‘Film Fest’ awards! By the way, I got a director’s contact number.😉
THEN, there was a BOAT cruise that was soo much fun!!!! I had to pinch myself. A deluxe dinner cruise up the Hudson River on the beautiful Bateaux New York, we saw the Statue of Liberty up close!
I got to see some other great sights in New York, also, and made new friends!
The food was delicious and the weekend was so special! There were drinks, networking, dancing and music. Everyone was really nice and enjoying themselves! It was a once in a lifetime experience!
People came in from Australia, Denmark, Norway, and Canada! It was a growth experience I will never forget it.
… pictures and stories cannot even do it justice! You had to be there! But that’s just the thing, not EVERYONE could be so I want to share some more pics.
I even got to go to a little Italian restaurant and eat “mezze” and enjoy a glass of wine (or two😉), near Times Square right in the heart of New York! It’s underground, the kind of restaurant you would find in the movie “Godfather!”
There was a lot more I don’t have time to include right now, but finally, I wanted to add some popular quotes. I took A LOT of notes, and these were the ones that I picked out to share!
• “As an entrepreneur, you are going to fail! Do not give up!” ~Ice-T
• “Be PRESENT. Find what the “secret” is for you!” ~Michael Gerber
• “Story is what people buy, they never buy the product!” ~Steve Larsen
• “It doesn’t matter what you sell, the product is YOU!!!” ~Clint Arthur
• “It is WHO you are and WHO you are perceived to be, that is the game!” ~Clint Arthur
• “By the time you’re clients come to you, they should ALREADY have come to you, IF they can get to you!!!!” ~Clint Arthur
• “The marketing of what you do, IS more important than what you do!” ~Clint Arthur
• “ You are able to position your brand or cause by the POWER of celebrity.” ~Dylan Howard
• “The PROCESS is critical, NOT the product!” ~Michael Gerber
I was surrounded by beautiful and accomplished people: doctors, innovators, people who create solar energy, manage cyber security, one of them talked about developing medicine dispensers, and there were leaders in construction.
I thought, how did I get here, and how am I sitting among these people with SO much wealth and talent, it was a miracle!
