Episode 6: Obakengs´ powerful story of rising against all odds to self actualisation as a professional.
Meet Obakeng - a Civil Engineer with so much creativity and an inspiration to other young professionals on what it means to know and learn about who you really are and why that is so important to be successful and build your legacy. It is also the longest episode for a reason :) Sit back and tune in to this wonderful and powerful story. I absolutely loved talking with Obakeng and am honoured to have had the privilege to tell his story. From learning about his name to discovering how he has shaped his life - rising from poverty through fighting his way through the systems and questioning. He walked me through his self actualisation journey as a professional and revealed his powerful journey as he got diaognised with stage III colon cancer - absolutely loved his story! We spoke about purpose and how he found his place in a world that challenged his very existence. We spoke about being born as humans that need to drive our own learning journey. What we do about that is truly in our hands - listen to his journey and learning journey - particularly a journey to learning about who he is as Obakeng. By the way he is the first person I know who dropped out of creche ( kindergarten ) and made it :) -> he paved his way early on after an experience he had at kindergarten which led him to build a habit to thrive.

Episode 4: Talks with Blessing Mau narrative of the Zimbabwean youth part 1.
Had to split this episode in two parts because there was so much to talk about particularly in the upcoming second part which will focus on Zimbabwe and its young people. In this episode I spoke to Blessing Mau Maunze - who is paving his way in the legal ecosystem and putting his bet on hard work and finding balance. I have no doubt that hard work will continue to take him far. We also spoke of reflections of corona - which was interesting to hear Blessings reflections on work life balance. We went into long term visions and then Mau went into his narrative of Zimbabwe and how he feels. At that point part 2 was birthed - despite the frustration you might feel in this part 1 - in Part 2 we focus on solutions and give insights on how a young person in Zimbabwe can push forward. Particularly right now where there is a lot of disappointment and lost hope given the status of the country. It is something I could not push aside because I could sense the anguish of young people particularly because the conditions in the country are quite harsh to its youth. Where would you place your bet on ? Hard work or smart work?
