Based on her own experiences as an independent travel journalist, freelancer, digital magazine publisher and solopreneur, she speaks on how to chart a course to achieve your goals.
Quoted in outlets such as Sherman’s Travel, CWAtlanta and Smart Business, she has presented as a speaker and/or panelist at schools, universities, networking groups, and on podcasts. Some venues she has presented at include Business Radio X, Freelancers Union, How to be Global podcast and more. A full list of presentations and press mentions are available on www.ruksanawrites.com
An award-winning journalist, writer and editor with 20 years’ experience, 10 of that as a full-time freelancer and independent consultant, Ruksana’s bylines have appeared in California Business Chronicle, Delta Sky Lines, Restless magazine (United Kingdom), Luxury Travel Magazine (Australia), Visit California, Diversity Professional, Cuisine Noir, Khabar, The Traveler’s Table, Irvine Weekly and more.
In 2020, Ruksana founded and published Traveler and Tourist magazine, a digital, subscriber-only, monthly travel lifestyle publication with the aim of diverse and inclusive coverage in terms of content and perspective, place and people, culture and engagement, through the travel adventures she has experienced. The magazine, which introduced video content in 2021, is created for worldwide readership and can be subscribed on www.travelerandtourist.com
Born in India and raised in Oman, Ruksana has always embraced change in lifestyle and perspectives with the change in culture and scenarios around her. That worldview only further benefited when she moved to the United States as a 25-year-old young adult. But the challenges she faced and the obstacles she experienced having no informal or formal networks to guide her and provide direction meant that she had to navigate in a new land all on her own.
Learning from her surroundings, Ruksana exploited the power of introductions, strength of referrals and recommendations to effectively network for long-lasting relationship building that has resulted in her overall success. This has resulted in a successful career as a solopreneur and travel journalist earning opportunities on media trips to Japan, Poland, Mexico, Yukon Territory in Canada, Dominican Republic, Costa Rica, and more.

Mark Wilhelmsson is the Author of "EMERGENCY - This Book Will Save Your Child's Life," Founder of Our Child's Keeper and the "Baby and Child Safety Master Class"
Mark founded Our Child's Keeper after he nearly lost his son to a choking incident just after his second birthday. Luck saved him, not Mark. It was a wake up call - and here's why this is such an important issue to discuss and raise the awareness of: This year, nearly a million children worldwide will not make it to the age of 5. In the United States alone, it’s approximately 8,000 children—or nearly one child per hour, according to Safe Kids Worldwide. This isn't due to war, disease or famine. We're losing these children from accidental injuries, most of which could have been prevented - and it's time that changed. Mark was an Investigator in NYC working on Civil, Supreme and Federal Court cases for over 26 years and then he decided to pivot and take that skill-set to look at what the real reasons are this is happening, and what we can do to radically reduce the number of childhood deaths and injuries worldwide – and he believes it's by empowering parents with the knowledge, life-saving skills and access to the most trusted experts and resources to protect and keep their children safe. Mark subsequently became a Certified Infant, Child and Adult CPR, AED and First Aid Instructor and Water Safety Ambassador through the Amercan Red Cross. Check out his course at

Pete Bombaci , founder of The GenWell Project, is an expert on the benefits of human connection and the effects of loneliness. Pete is an expert in the field of human connection and the founder of The GenWell Project - a Canadian organization dedicated to making the world a healthier and happier place by reminding people about the importance of face-to-face social connection as a proactive health action that they can take, and inspiring them to take action.
Pete is a passionate, grassroots brand builder and visionary business leader who believes that by doing the right thing every day, exceptional results are created. His engaging leadership style comes from an enthusiasm and genuine desire to help others, as well as the belief that building a great culture encourages collaboration, great execution and ultimately bottom line results.
Following a successful career in the beverage alcohol industry, Pete ventured into the world of charities and not-for-profits by heading up Movember Canada. Under his leadership, Movember Canada grew to become the largest fundraising country around the world. After nearly five years, Pete left Movember Canada and has since focused on the roll out of his passion project, The GenWell Project.
The need for the Human Connection Movement was clear long before the global pandemic, but Covid-19 has raised the collective awareness about how much we actually need each other and how a lack of human connection can lead to mental and physical health issues and less happiness in our lives. Beyond the pandemic, there will be a great need to get people re-connected, whether because they are struggling, are out of their routine or if they are looking to find more purpose. Human connection transcends every illness, cause and crisis. We are going to need each other more than ever as we work to recover from the global pandemic.

Tom Tikka picked up the guitar at the tender age of six after hearing Paul Anka’s “Lonely Boy” in his father’s old Chevrolet. Soon afterwards, he began writing songs. Tom’s infatuation with music only deepened after his aunt’s husband Timo "Oippa" Oinonen introduced him to the concept of lead guitar and even more importantly to the music of such legendary groups as The Beatles and The Doors.
Tikka formed almost as many groups as he disbanded in his late teens and early twenties. Yet, when he finally signed his first recording contract on his 21st birthday, it was a solo deal and not a band effort. He recorded a three-song EP for OlarinMusiikki, a small indie label in Espoo (Finland), under the alias of Tom Spark. Unfortunately, the EP disappeared as quickly as it was released. Consequently, Tikka found himself in square one, without a band or a record deal.
Disappointed, Tom withdrew from music for a few years but began writing songs again once his brother Lappe Holopainen suggested that they form a songwriting team. Lappe had founded a group he was convinced would go far and he needed tunes for his new outfit. This group was Carmen Gray.
Carmen Gray was signed to Sony/BMG in 2005 and during the next nine years, they went on to record three albums and one EP. The group's entire catalog (including such radio hits as “Lost In My Mind Again”, “Gates Of Loneliness” & “Life Can Be Beautiful”) was penned by Tom Tikka & LappeHolopainen.
After Carmen Gray disbanded in 2013, Tikka formed his current group The Impersonators with poet Antti Autio. In 2017, The Impersonators signed with FBP, a German label based out of Frankfurt. Together with their producer Janne Saksa, the Josie Award-nominated The Impersonators have released tunes to rave reviews, considerable amount of radio attention and chart success. In April 2020, Tom began working with MTS Records and has since released three critically-acclaimed EPs, one album and seven iTunes hit singles, including the two #1 hits ”Doormat” and ”With Eyes Closed”.
In 2021, Tom Tikka won an ISSA award for International Male Emerging Artist Of The Year. He was also awarded four Josie-Award nominations as well as a nomination in the prestigious Hollywood Music In Media Awards. You can check out the things Tom is up to by going to www.tomtikka.com

James Flynn’s artwork has taken on many forms over the years. As a child he enjoyed drawing faces, and although this particular pleasure would return later in life, his teenage years led him into a very different corner of the art world.
During the late 1990’s James got lured into the thriving London graffiti scene. This huge art movement, which had spread out from New York in the 1980’s, completely engulfed him and changed his life.
His childhood portraits gave way to edgy, letter-based designs, and spray paint became his preferred medium. Getting his artwork up across the walls and train lines of London was the only thing that mattered to him for many years, spurring on a new stage of his artistic evolution, but his participation in this underground scene could not last forever.
Graffiti was turning him into a criminal, and after a few brushes with the law (as well as brushes with death whilst walking along busy train tracks at night) he decided to turn his attention back to traditional and safer forms of art.
After focusing on letter-based designs for so long he was craving the more intricate nature of portraiture once again, and in his early twenties he began creating a new body of work. Combining all of his learned methods into one, he developed his style and execution in a big way.
From around 2008 to 2016 James produced countless portraits, and even began to branch out into figurative work. This was an immensely creative time for him, but another evolutionary step was about to take place.
With so many ideas running through his head, James began to feel frustrated by the limitations of visual art. He had so many visions that he wanted to portray, so many things that he wanted to express, but the medium he was using simply wouldn’t allow it.
It was during this creative crisis that he decided to start writing. As James recalls: ‘Visual art can portray a hell of a lot, anyone who’s ever “lost themselves” in a painting can definitely vouch for that, but it still has less dimensions than writing. My creative streak was on overdrive and I needed an outlet for it, I needed a way to express it, and a book seemed like the only way to do it.’
His debut novel was published in early 2017, and at the time it was his biggest ever artistic pursuit. Conservation, a work of SF horror, contains James Flynn’s own blood, sweat and tears, and the book also symbolises the broadening of his artistic passion. Conservation changed the direction of James’s art, and it led him to create and publish several more books. James Flynn grew up in Kent, England.
His ultimate dream as an author is to cause a reader to be confined to a mental institution and sectioned under the mental health act after reading one of his stories, although he admits that this is a bit optimistic.
James's work has appeared in Black Petals Magazine, Yellow Mama Magazine, The Scare Room Podcast, Weird Mask Magazine, and the short story anthology Local Haunts.
