To round up 2020, I thought some might like to learn a little more about me as an individual. And, because I prefer not to talk about myself I thought I'd share an interview that I had with Alex Sapala who invited me onto his show, the Business, Wealth And Mindset Podcast. Alex is one of the most successful and ambitious Malawians living in Britain today, he's made a massive success of himself in the work place and also with property investing but you would never know because he keeps himself humble.
Alex with Heather who shares her fascinating journey and discusses why she has chosen to be employed in a role that offers her flexibility and the time to undertake the hobbies she loves.
This is a great opportunity to hear from someone who experienced being employed and working for herself before making a conscious choice to be employed. It’s always vital to find out what makes you happy, what is the real you and how to achieve this in life.
