Today’s episode hit home for me: it was a journey into being honest with ourselves and ensuring that we look after ourselves in order to look after others and do our daily work.
Derek shared with us many insights from his journey that took him from seeking his purpose, finding depression, and changing course to be on purpose again.
He’s a lovely human with a genuine desire to help people become better versions of themselves.
Here’s a summary of what we discussed:
06:45 - the shift to being an entrepreneur
12:00 - when depression became real
22:20 - challenges all business owners face
27:30 - self awareness is our internal power
35:20 - the mistake of focussing only on numbers
and much more…
