We had the good fortune of connecting with Lina Younes and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Lina, how did you come up with the idea for your business?
I have been in the professional domain since I was nineteen years old. I worked in several schools, institutions, publishing houses, and organizations as a part time, full time, and freelance. Thus, I always wanted to be my own boss and to this end, I have started recently to publish kindle books. Writing is my window to the outer world. I have started my books targeting kids especially that on line learning and homeschooling became major thing due to covid 19. Nevertheless, I will be writing more interesting ebooks that serve as a guide in relationships and self motivation. I would like to note that my kindle books are very affordable and If someone has a subscription on Kindle Amazon, they can read them for free within Kindle Unlimited.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I have been working for almost 19 years. I had my challenges, concerns, and insecurities. I had people who encouraged me and a lot of people who tried to put me down. But because I insisted, handled pressure, respected time and order, I was able to trespass the obstacles. The journey is still at the beginning and hopefully things will be easier. If not I will be stronger.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
When they are your best friends and people who understand you the most, the place, activity, or time will not matter. If you were just sitting and chatting for hours, talking about life, relationships, and challenges, this would be amusing and inspiring. You have from the start to choose people who are like you for you to be comfortable. Solid relationships and friendships are the ones that last even though you can’t see them or talk to them much but you know they are there for you.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I would like to give a huge credit to my family, my sister Sara who helped me on this project, and my friend Edgar. I would like to thank you as a magazine for highlighting these issues and promoting small businesses.
