Her Immigrant Success Story Becomes The Inspiration For A Real Life Roadmap for Reinvention, Entrepreneurship, and Money in The Bank.

Miami (October 1, 2018) -- From the outside looking in, Silva Harapetian had it all: a 20-year career as a Television Journalist and a life on South Beach. But, the 43-year-old California native says she was drowning in sorrow and stress. Clearly, something needed to change, and it would. So, with only a vision, a plan written on her I-Phone notepad and her skills as a producer/reporter, she quit her job.

Silva is now giving audiences a rare and raw behind-the-scenes look at a life that seems glamorous from the outside but is anything but.

“Journalism is an emotionally and mentally taxing business that can be toxic, traumatic and requires one to pay a hefty price. I become a journalist to tell stories that impacted people’s lives, informed, educated and inspired them. For a long time, I did that, and it fueled my purpose. But, somewhere along the way, something changed and I found myself covering mostly death and destruction.”

Silva just released the Episode 00 of a 13 Episode web-series called “An Entrepreneur’s Journey.”  Realizing she is one of 550,000 new entrepreneurs across the nation every single month (according to the Kauffman Startup Index) – she wanted to document her ups and downs as she tries to scale her consulting, speaking and video production business.

“I think a lot of people find themselves at a point of transition -- wanting to leave a 9 to 5 job or simply making a life change. It is scary move to make. I’m a storyteller and as I worked through these difficult times in my heart and in my mind, I captured those pivotal moments on camera.”

The docu-series has been her way of trying to make sense of being at this crossroad at this point in her life. It’s a similar journey that so many other people are on.

“This path is a process that takes you into the deepest darkest part of your soul because you have to grief the end of one identity and begin molding into another one. It is a hopeless, helpless feeling but I wanted to show people that with a shift in perspective, it is also an opportunity to grow, expand, change, transform, reinvent, make an impact and a BE better, badass bolder YOU.”

Silva has lived the American Dream. Born just a few years before the Iranian Revolution, her family immigrated to the United States when she was a teenager. After graduating from USC, she enjoyed success as a television journalist, an unlikely career for a person whose English is her 4th language. She believes learning to navigate life changes at an early age gave her the courage to take a leap of faith and start new.

“My life has been full of twists and turns. I learned at a very young age how to survive in chaos and how to thrive in times of change. I was not going to allow my age or the number of years I had invested in a career to keep me from living a fulfilling, happy and prosperous life.”

She says, she’s not quite sure what will come of this journey, but creating her own path and sharing her journey publicly has been empowering.

“I hope it inspires everyone else who feels trapped, isolated, hopeless. I have faith in the success of this journey and this project as it is truly rooted in service.”

Silva is available for interviews. Contact [email protected] to set up a time.
