Ali Ettarnichi was born in Morocco, North Africa then moved to Canada in 2007 to start a new chapter in his life. Things did not go the way he planned and in the midst of all the hustle and the bustle of his new journey, Ali also experienced hardship and struggle that included discrimination, depression, divorce, being a single dad, and addiction. But these many Rejections helped him discover his Redirection and he found his “WHY” in life.

He is an International Connector, and Organizer of Global Summits featuring diverse speakers who raise awareness about our Humanity, Connection and what is really important to us as Human beings rather than focusing on Competition, Discrimination, Materialism, Division, and Exclusion.

As the Podcast host of “Ali’s Dose Of Inspiration” he brings guests from all over the world, who went through rough times, Rejection, Tragedy and Struggle but they bounce back, they raise above obstacles, his podcast is about Hope, Rebirth and Resiliency. He believes that Rejection is God’s Protection to guide us to the right Direction.

It chronicles his journey to fulfill his passion and follow his calling, arriving at his ultimate destination through Rejection and Redirection, from Point “A” to Point “B”, Ali found his “Y.” Filled with true-life stories from behind the wheel and from Ali’s personal life, this wise book offers uplifting and original insight and practices to inspire and motivate each reader.

Just A Cab Driver captured my attention from the get-go. Calling Ali my friend, I was eager to learn more about the nitty-gritty of his soul journey. With full transparency, jumping the hoops through humour, drama, resiliency and enlightment, this book gives us permission to claim our voice and operate from our wildest dreams. If you are sitting on the fence in deciding to « take flight » or not, I believe by connecting to his practical universal messages and real life experiences, you will harness your inner power to expand your wings and fly into new horizons.
