Leverage is the key!

This podcast is an inspirational journey full of adventure into learning how to fulfil your potential to gain success. I have become a regular listener, a huge fan and you could even say I’m addicted to it. The nature of each and every interview is extremely well received to the point where they come across as two people conversing like friends sharing knowledge and experiences. Ebony’s questions and rapport with each individual is effortless and this allows us as listeners to truly understand the success stories of these unique and amazing people. The variety of insight, the tools and the ‘golden nuggets’ as I like to all them given by each person is endless. I find myself feeling inspired and motivated where my mind wants to achieve more and more after each podcast I listen to. I have noted so many lessons, ideas, key tasks and quotes which have broadened my understanding of success, what this means to me and how I can achieve my goals. I recommend that you listen to every one but favourite ones thus far have been Rob Moore “Using Leverage and Building the Habits for Success” and René Carayol MBE “How to Discover our Strengths and Greatness” just because their stories and words resonate with me the most. Can’t wait for the next one! To sign off I want to quote René Carayol “if you’re bold you might fail, if you’re not bold you will fail, time to be bold!” and “Leaders make Leaders”. Ebony keep up the fantastic work, I’m know you and your guests are inspiring people like me to believe and motivate ourselves to implement actions to achieve real success, this is a true art!
