Tips to my younger self and you… Whether you’re just establishing yourself as a leader or a corporate decision-maker already, unlocking your true potential starts with understanding yourself and learning from your experiences.  In this episode, I share 15 essential tips I wish I could have given to my younger self, covering key topics like self-awareness, effective communication, and resiliency.

We’ll explore the importance of recognizing when to part ways with people whose paths no longer align with yours and the reality of being replaceable in the corporate world—an acknowledgment that can fuel your determination to excel.

We’ll delve into the significance of living in the present, understanding that material wealth doesn’t equate to happiness, and how finding contentment in simplicity can bring true freedom.
