My name is Victor Sosanya. My aim is to help you become more valuable. This is a journey I started a few years ago by working on my self-development. I desired to earn more so I had to make a drastic change internally. As Jim Rohn said, "If you work hard on your job you'll make a living, if you work hard on yourself you'll make a fortune". So how do you become more valuable? By working on your philosophy, character, attitudes, skills, communication and much more.I've been fortunate to connect with many highly valued individuals from a range of different industries. Their stories and teachings were so profound that I wanted to share them with you all. This is why I created The Valuable Podcast where I'll be sitting down with these guests delving deeper into their stories and how they became valuable. I will be talking to students, professionals, entrepreneurs, athletes, creatives, and many more insightful people. I hope that by listening to these conversations you can extract value and practically apply the information to help you on your journey.
