Today’s guest is a skilled and passionate community advocate.
She is a breast cancer survivor turned advocate who launched the Asian Breast Cancer Project in 2010. The ABC Project gives Asian women access to resources, education, and support during and after traumatic and difficult cancer treatments.
Motivated to lead through her own cancer experience, she continues to participate in local and national efforts on health policy affecting the Asian community. She founded Asian Women for Health, a peer-led, community-based network in 2012. Her remarkable passion for supporting her community has changed the healthcare landscape for Asian women and created a pipeline of future leaders and peer health educators.
Her efforts have been recognized numerous times, including being named one of the most influential people of color in Life Science and Healthcare in 2017 and receiving The Laurel of Community Service Award from the Cancer Prevention Foundation in 2019.

Relationship-Based Business Strategist
Are you ready to create a Relationship-Based Business Plan that will help you achieve greater impact (and income)?
- You want to have a greater impact and increased income. The problem is that there are so many options for how to build your business that you can feel stuck, overwhelmed, and like you're running out of time.
- The reason options are overwhelming is that you're looking at them as a series of disconnected steps when — to make the most of your time — you need a strategy that connects only the most important and highest impact ones.
- Why? Because you know it's true that if you try to do everything, you will accomplish nothing. This means, to achieve your goal, you have to invest in a strategy to put time on your side.
- How? This program will help you find the clarity to determine what is the right next step for your business. A book? A podcast? An online course? Masterminds? Speaking on bigger stages?
- Together we will design a 12-month Relationship-Based Business Plan that will allow you to stack your successes to create momentum and leverage your limited time.
- Read about this program and then schedule a complimentary 60-minute session to see if it's a good fit. www.robbiesamuels.com/more
