Samira's Table™ offers Exposure, Experiences, and Inspiration™ to architect the life of your dreams.
Hi! I’m Samira. Welcome to Samira’s Table. This is a place where you can visit, pull up a chair, listen, learn, and join the discussion (if you choose). We are all in this together; “this” is the glorious, frustrating, rewarding, challenging, graceful, loving, and fulfilling journey we call LIFE. Many of us have relatable questions, concerns, thoughts, challenges, opportunities and struggles. And my table is a place where we can share, explore, and learn from one another.
On this site I will share my journey from Tax Lawyer to Entrepreneur and Lifestyle Architect; and the tips, tools, and practices I employ to stay healthy, balanced, and honor my soul’s calling. And all the fun adventures, experiences, and culinary delights along the way.
So, pull up a chair, connect, join in on the conversation, leave comments, and ask questions. And most of all, enjoy Samira’s Table.
About Samira’s Table
Why did I start this website? Throughout the countless hours of building it, I’ve been asked this question regularly. And the answer is very simply:
- Because I am passionate about creating a well-rounded life,
- I’m fascinated by all of the practices that help people become and stay happy, healthy, fulfilled, and successful,
- I want to soak up each and every morsel on the journey,
- And, I want to offer you tastes, bites, sips, plates and entire dinner parties.
Eight years ago, I was a corporate tax lawyer at a multinational oil company. I helped write tax code with Congress. I was quickly climbing the proverbial corporate ladder, but you know what? I wasn’t happy. So one day, in February 2008, I quit—and decided the kind of code I really wanted to write was one that led to a happy, more well rounded life. I finally started discovering my passions and building my own businesses. I dove into this new life head first and full-bodied.
The more I experienced, the more my appetite for this life grew. Encouragingly, I found that other people felt this way, too. Friends, family, clients, and colleagues started asking questions—from how to start a business? How to feel more confident? Where to travel? How to stay fit with all the food around? (Because don’t think I shy away from the bread basket or a plate of fried chicken!) I shared my journey of how I became the architect of my own life. Every chance and every leap I’ve taken felt worth it, as I began to see others become empowered and inspired to transform their own lives.
Encouraged and excited by these experiences, I decided to take another step forward in my own journey and launch the official Samira’s Table website: a place where we can come together and share how we all feed our lives and our spirits. I’ll show you how I’ve architected a life where my work is my play, and my play is my work. I’ll explain how I’m continuously simmering, tasting and seasoning the code on time management, fitness, health, wellness and balance. And of course, I’ll also show you where to eat, wherever in the world you may be. As a bonus, I’ll even show you how to do it all in fabulous heels.
Welcome to Samira’s Table, friends. I hope you’re hungry.
