Episode Overview

Happy New Year everyone! The beginning of this brand new year and brand new decade is not the only reason we at NDINI are celebrating.  Our very first episode of 2020 also happens to be our 100th episode! How amazing is that!

Looking back, I realize I had the idea of starting this platform for a long time, but I never took action.  I can make up a million excuses why…but the long and the short of it was that I was AFRAID. I asked myself, “Who am I to be doing this? Will people even watch?

But I eventually summoned the courage to take the plunge and launch this platform.  I’ve been blessed to interview so many inspiring and trailblazing women. What I’ve learned is that just like me, they too have had to face and overcome their fears.

“Fear is our number one enemy. It’s the one thing that stops us from stepping into our greatness, stepping into our calling, stepping into everything we were meant to be.” – Sandra Chuma

In this special celebration episode, I talk about the journey from before the very first episode until now – as we mark our milestone 100th episode.  I talk about the fears I had to face, the things I was afraid of that came true, and how through taking action despite my fears, NDINI has become what it is today.

I have cried many tears, and been challenged in ways I could never have imagined. But it’s also been so fulfilling. The growth I have experienced, both personally and professionally, through this journey is incredible — the amazing people I have met, the people that supported and continue to support this platform, the lives that have changed and been inspired through the stories we tell — all of which are the and  reasons I am so proud to reflect on and celebrate this special milestone.

I also talk about my dreams for NDINI.  I believe this platform is destined to go far beyond just sharing the stories of inspiring and trailblazing women.  I believe that with your help, this platform will provide significant tangible benefits to communities around the world.

And since we’re celebrating a milestone for this platform, I did something different for this episode.  Its actually something I’ve never done before. Long-time NDINI followers know about our Quick Fire Q&A segment, where I ask our guests some fun questions to give us a chance to get to know a different and lighter side. For our 100th episode, I was in the hot seat! I got to answer my own Quick Fire questions! (Hint: Make sure you watch till the end)

I want to take a moment to say THANK YOU. Thank you for being with me on this journey for the last 100 episodes. Thank you to every single person who has sent me messages of support on the days I just didn’t think I could carry, and on the days it felt like I didn’t know what I was doing. Thank you for your encouragement. Thank you for listening, watching, and sharing.

And a huge and very special thank you to the women who have willingly given of their time to share their stories with us, and in so doing, have inspired each one of us to step into our purpose and calling.

Don’t forget that we are also celebrating this milestone by giving away our first FREE eBook! Make sure you grab a copy! You can do that by clicking on the eBook banner on our home page, or by visiting last week’s episode.
