129: Success is... The first six months of Diferente & 10 Takeaways for 2018.

Updated: Jan 30, 2019

I started off 2018 with the intention that I would let inspiration take a hold of me and guide me. And that’s exactly what happened when I created Diferente.

In the first six months of Diferente we’ve been blessed with amazing guests who have shared their thoughts on what success means to them. Because at Diferente, we believe that success is a personal word, to be defined by each individual only! There is never a wrong answer when it comes to answering this question…

What is your definition of Success?

If you haven’t taken time to reflect on this seven letter word, what better time than now?!

Every single conversation we’ve had on Diferente has left me with something to reflect on and expanded my curiosity even further. But since I don’t have time to share EVERYTHING I've learned with you, I decided to put together my personal list of ten takeaways that I hope also resonated with you!
