About The Author
Welcome to my website!
name is Zorka Hereford and I'm the author of Essential
Life Skills.net. I appreciate the opportunity to share my
insights, discoveries and knowledge with you.
According to my parents and every memory I have of
myself, I have always been an endlessly curious person. From the time
I could talk I was always going around asking - why? why? why? until I
nearly drove everyone crazy. I had to have answers to everything and
everything had to fit into my concept of the world, life and myself.
What's so strange about that? Apparently, more than I thought.
As I later discovered, it is very easy for people to get caught up
in the motion of everyday life and not spend too much time thinking
about behind the scenes quandaries like "who am I?" and
"what am I doing here"?
Luckily for me, my family did not own a television until I was
about eleven years old. Not surprisingly, having no television to
distract me helped cultivate my love of
reading and, in turn, my mission to devour every book I could get my hands on.
We happened to live near a beautiful 16th Century Tudor style library/art gallery (a work
of art in itself) where my brothers, sister and I
would go every Saturday to check out new books and enjoy the artwork.
Looking back, I realize those days lay the foundation for my avid pursuit of
knowledge in the humanities - the exploring, assessing and
interpreting of the human experience.
After earning a liberal arts degree with studies in philosophy and
psychology, I worked a combined twenty years for a top financial
institution and a number one communications company where I was
fortunate to acquire a broad spectrum leadership, customer service,
and instructional skills. I also hold a college degree in business management.
