Episode 11 - About overcoming difficult situations and claiming your desired life with Mirav Tarkka
Let me tell you why and how I have been inspired to start the You in the Spotlight interview series. My friend and client Mirav Tarkka from Mirav Tarkka - Pepper Coaching, send me her videos in a raw/un edited format – and I looked at them and I’ve realised how much vulnerability but in the same time strength is in putting yourself out there, in the spotlight, to build your brand, to touch lives, to create change! Mirav is an internationally acclaimed Power Coach, Author, Self Defense Expert, former IDF Operational Sargeant and the Founder of Pepper Coaching who has empowered hundreds of individuals worldwide to reclaim their Power, Passion, and Purpose and to conquer their dreams. Despite the tremendous violence and fear she experienced from early childhood, her insatiable passion for life has always been a huge part of who she is. By the age of 18, Mirav had been through 4 wars and entered military service as an Operational Sergeant and SelfDefense Instructor. Inspired by her wish to understand violence, help people deal with challenges, and her curiosity to demystify human nature, Mirav achieved University Degrees in Psychology and Criminology. Her passion then led her to become a world-renowned Self Defense Expert for 18 years and to support women in finding a higher level of awareness, developing confidence, and regaining control over their lives. Mirav's work has been featured all over the globe, in TV and print media. But in spite of appearances, Mirav suffered from a lack of confidence and it was only after working with a Life Coach that her self-development journey towards true empowerment began. After overcoming the fact that she became a single mother, facing a divorce, and moving countries, she gave birth to Pepper Coaching, so she could help more people than ever reclaim their inner strength and achieve big goals. Today living on the picturesque sunny border of the French Riviera with her two daughters, Mirav supports clients worldwide and has been working with world-class mentors to release her first book entitled ‘Undefeatable’
