Sometimes you plan a particular convo and then another incredible one emerges! Exactly what happened in this week’s episode of #AdjacentConversations with the truly incredible Papama Mtwisha I mean wow! I didn’t want it to end! This one truly was for the books! The lessons here on trusting intention, the power of feeling, the very ethos you literally sew and pray into your products! I started this convo with the goal to find out Papama’s secret sauce to getting @AfricaYourTimeIsNow to global scale and I left with finding out the real hack to personal and business success! The internal work is even more important that typically where we focus - margins, models, scale, production, etc. Papama’s power in vulnerability and truth is certainly something to be admired.
