The Create & Thrive Podcast 63

This episode is all about defining what ‘success’ means to you – in life and business.

We are all so different, and this means that there is no one formula for success.

There are general ideals that can get pushed upon us by family or society – or ideas of success that we have become comfortable with or conditioned to. But will these stereotypical ideas of success truly bring you happiness and contentment?

This episode isn’t purely focussed on a business point of view – I speak more about a holistic view of success encompassing your whole life, health, relationships and or course your creative biz!

If you don’t have a clear idea of what success means to you then this episode will push you (and may even be uncomfortable) as I aim to help you to realign to the path that is right for you… because it can be so easy to find yourself taking the wrong fork in the road.
