Imagine if it was something you crafted, a masterpiece you worked on tirelessly till it was just right. That's the story Joy and I, your hosts, are here to share with you in our 800th podcast episode.

We unravel misconceptions about overnight success and divulge the truth: success is a transformation that requires hard work and perseverance. North American and European cultures might sell you the dream of instant change, but we're here to tell you that there's no shortcut to creating a life of purpose, prosperity, and joy. The struggles you've faced and challenges you've overcome are the secret ingredient to your success.
