Feel the FEAR and Do it Anyway

Recently, I was interviewed for a PODCAST Show about female entrepreneurs in the MENA (Middle East and North Africa) region. Delighted as I was to be invited to be a guest on the show, it was certainly out of my comfort zone!  My first ever interview on, for all intents and purposes, a radio programme.  Thankfully not a live one!

When we are closed minded we devalue ourselves, because stagnation of energy is utlimately death. When we are condescending, we are doing it to our Self primarily, and when we think we know best, that is the time to question our motives and our egos.
