GIFTED ENTREPRENEUR’S A-LIST
NAME: Tahani Aburaneh
COMPANY: Tahani International
“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” ― Maya Angelou
WHAT DO YOU DO?
I am an entrepreneur, author, trainer, and speaker. I educate people on how to create and increase their freedom and wealth through real estate investing.
Whether it’s through writing, consulting, speaking, or land development, I focus on creating positive transformations in people, businesses, and land.
WHY DO YOU DO?
I believe your ‘why’ can change as you evolve in your life.
When I was married off at the age of 15 and sent to live in Canada, the driving force in my life was to help my family back home in the refugee camp by supporting them to live better.
Years later as a single mother, the driving force became raising my 2 children. It didn’t matter how much I had to juggle or how many obstacles I faced, making sure that there was a roof over their heads and food on their plate was my mission.
Today, it’s about contribution and making a positive difference in the lives of people that fuels my relentless drive. Whether through sharing my life’s lessons & struggles or my expertise, I have a dream to inspire and empower as many people as I can. My hope is they too will reveal, contribute and serve using their gifts (their story/knowledge/experience), to make the world a better and more loving place.
HOW DO YOU DESCRIBE YOUR GIFT?
There are 2 gifts that stand out the most to me:
This first gift we all have, which I naturally tune into more than some others- intuition!
Listening to my gut/intuition has guided me out of many unhealthy relationships and stops me from entering unethical business opportunities or professional partnerships that aren’t aligned with my core values. I call this gift “the intuitive entrepreneur.”
My second gift is the natural ability to connect with people on a deep level, a ‘relationship builder’. I did not see this gift of mine myself. Other’s kept pointing it out to me. I use this gift to build positive and supportive relationships that are healthier, happier, and more satisfying. That’s why I encourage you to pay attention to other gifts you have but aren’t aware of.
HOW DO YOU GIFT IT FORWARD?
Personally, I gift it forward through education and training. As gifted entrepreneurs it would be selfish not to share our knowledge and expertise with the world. Whether it’s through writing or speaking, I want to keep educating so when I leave this world the lessons carry on.
One way I do this in my business is by donating 100% of the royalties of my Amazon Bestselling book Real Estate Riches: A Money Making Game Plan for the Canadian Investor to Care®, an organization that fights poverty in third world countries with an emphasis on women.
HOW DID YOU START ON YOUR GIFTED JOURNEY?
It started as a little girl helping my family and younger brothers while living in the refugee camp. I would bake cookies, get my brothers to help sell them, and then split the profits so we both benefited.
I believe charity begins at home, it all starts with helping your loved ones, your family and then the circle gets wider and wider. I believe that this experience shaped my desire and purpose to serve and make a positive impact in as many people as possible.
WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE THE 21 YEAR OLD VERSION OF YOURSELF?
Get inspired by the big vision but focus on the daily actions/habits that may seem irrelevant or insignificant but end up making all the difference later on. Especially when things aren’t clear, take small daily steps forward by asking questions and searching around because later that will shape who you become.
Also, surround yourself with right people. I can’t stress this enough. If you surround yourself with positive people who build you up, the sky is the limit. Every great person was, is, or will be successful because of the company he or she keeps.
WHO ARE THE ARCHANGELS IN YOUR LIFE?
It would be hard for me to select 2 or 3 people that inspire me, because it’s truly actions and characteristics of many that inspire me. Anyone who displays courage, triumph, determination, compassion, a never give up attitude, and pulls through even when all odds are against them. Those people inspire me. Whether it’s the single mothers/fathers, small business owners, or someone who battles their health issue, they inspire me.
