What Lies Beneath Success

Since I have started blogging and started posting on Instagram I have met incredible humans that encourage others to live a life of fulfilment, chase dreams and be happy! Loyal followers who became friends! Online friends that are real people with big hearts and now I call them Family!

I have blocked very few followers since the beginning of my journey in finding myself and pursuing dreams.

Writing, Photography, Fashion, Styling Coach, Nutrition and Beauty!

However, I have kept 99% of my Social Media Family and with them I learnt that it is worth keeping believing in menKIND!

With the friendship we learnt and grew together as I understood the power of Success and that is – SUCCESS IS NOT POSSIBLE ALONE!

To my amazing Social Media Family I thank you for keeping me believing in myself, for your support and kindness. For the gift of Friendship that comes in so many ways and this year I was lucky to have had an incredible journey discovering myself and opening my heart to my Podcasters Hosts.

I am thankful to you to allow me to express myself and share my story.

However, it all started with my very first podcast back in February 2021 and soon became an amazing avenue that led me to have an incredible experience!

Please meet my Podcast, Radio and Social Media Family members.

Podcast 1 February 2021 USA

When you are multitalented – Thought Row Episode 10 -When You’re Multi-Talented | Thought Row (blubrry.net) 

My very first podcast came from two people who are extremely talented. This power couple are artists Rod and Inci Jones and they have invited me to be a guest in their podcast.

My excitement could be felt as I accepted the invite!

What you don’t know is that I suffer from anxiety and I expect nothing less than perfection from myself and being like this has its pros and cons.

Perfection does not exist but I insist in chasing it so I prepared myself so much to the point all the preparation and anxiety stopped me from being myself as I decided to read my answers I was so scared to forget what I had prepared. Word by word had to be said so I did not sound stupid!

The day came and the anxiety was through the roof so as the interview started I could not understand their questions and I thought they changed the order of everything (which they did not) so I stopped the interview and we had to start all over again.

Inci and Rod you are a couple with a heart of gold, the kindness and patience you had with me were above anything I expected.

I am so lucky to have you both as my first hosts because kindly and with so much patience you made me feel special, you made me feel like my story matters and above all you made me feel confident.

Have I had a different experience I would never ever again been able to do another podcast so because of your love I felt that I was worth being listened to, that my story matters and I that I could help others through my experiences.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart you started my incredible journey in podcasts and to you both I am forever grateful.

Podcast 2 – May 2021 UK

Learn about Social media engagement and how to use it to lift and encourage others – Learn how to sell art online (@gavriella.sell.your.art.online) • Instagram photos and videos 

Soon after I was invited by Gavriella Sell Your Art Online

Gavriella is smart, inspiring and hard work. She is kind and I was lucky to have met her through Inci and Jones. Her passion for art has led her to help artists and I have so much respect for her work and vision.

I was able to speak to her and that collaboration has made me see through her soul, her calm way of speaking and her hard work has made her a success in her field.

I have so much connection with people who help others. I loved every minute of our chat, I was so much more relaxed and more confident having Gavriella as my first live chat on video, was extremely important to me as my confidence at the time was very low. However, you changed everything and I was able to speak to you and you made me feel so comfortable just like talking to a friend I have known for ages and so professionally done too.

Thank you for being so kind and for being an incredible human being, your mission is very honourable and you deserve all the success in what you are doing because your project can change the world of art and artists!

Podcast 3 – 13 June 2021 SINGAPORE

Online Business, Start Ups and Instagram business – XL 10 Minute Leaders

Graham D Brown asked me to be in his Podcast. This podcast was on video and I was thrilled to be able to talk to him. Graham is fun, professional and smart. At this point I was feeling confident enough and I did not have a set of questions before the show. I was a little nervous but it is I believe very understanding and normal to have some sort of anxiety before putting myself in the spotlight. My anxiety level was lower than before in my first two interviews and Graham was awesome. Easy to talk to and quite inquisitive which I believe you must be if you are hosting a podcast, talking show or radio.

We talked about business and the work of an influencer. Business chat with an insight on understanding what goes behind the work I do.

Although I was still a little nervous especially because I was not aware of the questions I was going to be asked, Graham was very interested and made me feel more and more comfortable as we spoke.

Thank you Graham your show is amazing. You are an incredible host!
