Working with top business professionals and sports personalities, I have observed that the Best never stop investing in getting better. That desire to continuously invest to get better puts us on the path to sustained wins. Every time I have met leaders from any field, I always wanted to learn what uniquely makes them successful. This podcast is a direct outcome of that learning and inspiration over the years.

Here are four reasons that make this podcast a must listen:
Hear it straight from global leaders
In this podcast you will hear from leaders from around the world and all walks of life, sharing their secrets. These are leaders who have wowed me with their way of thinking and putting their thoughts into action.
Secrets from leaders with different points of view
We are all different, and our individual leadership journey is different for each one of us. This podcast celebrates the different paths different leaders take to win. It shows that there is not one universal profile for a leader, and one path to win. In the first fifteen episodes, you will hear secrets from leaders from all over the world, all ages, and different areas of life. The leaders share their own unique thoughts and soundbites.
Importance of soundbites from leaders
Often you may not have time to immediately listen to an entire podcast, but need insight nuggets to nudge you forward. Those are times the soundbites and one-liners will give you a quick “spot of inspiration.”
