Loved how casual and real this podcast is! Hearing how humble Vincent is about his success and growth as an individual is absolutely captivating. This episode was a great reminder to go after what you want regardless of failed attempts; so when you get that second win it's so much sweeter, making you appreciate it much more! Not to mention connecting moments from your past that may have seemed so insignificant at the time become significant in your present. So excited to listen to future episodes of Think Alpha.
Valentine Ewudo is an incredible example of authentic empowerment. He exudes perseverance, strength, and incredible work ethic. Everyone that comes into his presence knows how much he cares through the depth of his heart felt listening. I am a huge supporter of his work and I know the space he holds will bring out the best of all the incredible leaders he interviews.
