How to Sustain Your Success with Grace and Confidence with Vanessa Raymond

Sustained success is the holy grail of any business. After all, it takes more than just hard work to become successful. Once we’ve reached the top, it takes even more effort to stay there. But, with the right mindset and approach, it is definitely possible to maintain long-term success in any area of our life.  

In this episode, Daniel sits with Victory in Biz founder, Vanessa Raymond. Vanessa is also an author, international speaker, serial entrepreneur, and Confidence and Success Coach. Listen in as Daniel and Vanessa share key things we can do to increase our chance of sustaining success, how to determine whose opinions to value, why we should be careful at saying  ‘yes’ to anything, how confidence is key to serving others, and how we can cope with increasing resistance as we continue to grow.
