Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”?
I would say it’s important to keep going and never give up. Work on developing strategies that assist you in the workplace to become more productive. And be grateful for what you have that many others do not. Take regular breaks and spend whatever spare time you have with family and friends.
None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story?
I am most grateful to my parents. I was born in Romania and was placed in an orphanage. At the age of three, I was adopted by a French and British family. To this day they have supported me throughout life. Without them, I would have nothing and would no doubt be homeless. So I owe my life to them.
How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?
My job is about storytelling, giving those an opportunity to part their knowledge and experiences in any of the shows we / I produce. I believe in giving anyone an opportunity to thrive and become successful irrespective of their past.
Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?
I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis back in May 2018 and life since then has not been easy. The quote which was parted to me by my parents is – “Love to live and live to love”. With this diagnosis, the importance of living life to the fullest is so important. Also being grateful for what we have. Love is all around us.
