Every traveller will have Cherry Blossom season in Japan on their bucket list!  This week I’ve been joined by Hon. Pauline Truong who has had many years of experience as an international lawyer, GlobePreneur, investor, advisor and writer, with a track record of awards, in many countries. She is featured on major mainstream media globally, including cover stories, and is a frequent guest lecturer and Keynote speaker at international universities and other professional events worldwide.

You can learn more about and connect with Pauline on her site.

“As a #GlobePreneur, one of my joys is seeing cherry blossoms in bloom around the world. Their spectacular display of energy, color and zest is quite amazing and vibrant. For many people, the blooming of the cherry blossom trees symbolizes human life, transience, renewal and nobleness. To me, cherry blossoms also signify female beauty, power, love, passion and strength. They remind us that our journey is beautiful but also very short, and that we should enjoy life to the fullest around the globe!”~ Hon. Pauline Truong
