    #52 ANNIVERSARY EDITION - Invest in yourself

    Consider the time you spend with family and friends - cocktail parties, family lunches, networking events, birthday celebrations… you make time for all these. Apart from time, you also invest money and effort - think about what it costs to raise a child from infancy to adulthood, or the amount you spend on bachelor parties, kitchen teas, birthday presents for people who are close to you. What about the effort you put into resolving family disputes, counseling friends through career crises and relationship drama. 

    But when you are asked to take 15 minutes a day to meditate or write in your journal, suddenly the time seems so scarce! Why?

    In this episode, host and life coach Thembe Khumalo shares some reflections on what it means to invest in yourself and some ideas on how Brandbuilder can help you do that. Because, as she says, "You are worthy."
