How does our upbringing dictate our current situation and future aspirations? How do we bottle the ingredients that create success? What are the childhood influences that really shape someone’s future? How can we raise kids to be confident, positive, creative and resourceful? What can we do about it as adults? These are all questions the Clever Tykes team is working hard to get to the bottom of. To do this we are interviewing people we admire. The line-up includes entrepreneurs, CEOs, sportspeople, actors and many more inspiring people from all walks of life, to find out how they were brought up. Come and join us every month to find out how amazing people became just that!

The first one I picked to listen to was Deepak Tailor. Love his entrepreneurial spirit! I can relate as I used to sell 15 cent combs to cowboys at my mother's horse shows when I was 10. As well, apples from our trees. Not as big an operation as Deepak, as we didn't have Ebay back in the 80's.
Be positive and listen to this amazing show!
