In today’s episode we have an incredible discussion with Dr. Adaeze Enekwechi, former White House Associate Director of Health Programs.
Adaeze was born in New Jersey and went to elementary School in Nigeria. 
Adaeze has experienced a highly successful career in a relatively short time. She started her career at the Congressional Budget Office, where she analyzed the federal budget and wrote about setting priorities for our future. A bit over a decade later, she went on to lead health programs at the White House Office of Management and Budget under President Obama, and worked across the entire federal health landscape.
Today she is the President of Impaq International and its subsidiaries. In addition she is a research associate professor at a University in Washington D.C.
In today’s discussion we cover a number of valuable nuggets. Adaeze talks about the importance of a sponsor. She talks about not allowing fear to dictate the direction that you take, and provides interesting insight about not being grateful in the workplace. Adaeze encourages us to figure out what makes us happy and focus on that. She believes that failure is a necessary part of success and speaks about going for it.
Adaeze recommends the following books:
1. Daring Greatly - Brene Brown
2. The Gifts of Imperfection - Brene Brown
3. Year of Yes - Shonda Rhimes
