Happy New Year, everyone! The beginning of a brand new year is not the only reason we at NDINI are celebrating, but because the first episode of 2020 also happens to be our 100th episode! How awesome is that!
Looking back to the beginning, I had the idea of starting this platform for so long but never stepped in and took action until just a few years ago. This was because I was too afraid. I had always questioned myself, “Who am I to be doing this? Will people watch my interviews and stories?” But after finally taking the plunge and starting to converse with so many amazing and phenomenal women, I had learned that just like me, they too had to face fear and overcome it.
“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 episode, I talk about our journey from before the first episode until reaching a hundred. I talk about the fears I had to face, the fears that came true and happened, and how I took action and overcame it leading to what NDINI has become now. I have cried many tears and have been challenged in ways I had never imagined. It’s been a very challenging journey, but also at the same time a very fulfilling journey. The growth I have experienced throughout this journey is amazing -- 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 that we tell -- all of which are the reason we reflect and celebrate this special milestone of reaching 100 episodes. Furthermore, I talk about my dreams for NDINI, because I believe that this platform is going to go beyond telling stories and inspiring people.
Also, I definitely did something different in this episode, something I’ve never done before. Long-time NDINI followers would know about our Quick Fire Q&A segment where I ask our guests questions to give us a chance to get to know them even more on a lighter note. For this 100th episode, I got to answer my own Quick Fire round! Make sure you watch till the end.
I just want to say THANK YOU. Thank you for being with me on this journey for the last 100 episodes. Thank you to every single who has sent me messages of encouragement on the days I just didn’t think I could carry on to continue this platform, on the days I just didn't know what I was doing. Thank you for your encouragement. Thank you for listening, watching, sharing, and supporting us. And a huge thank you to the women who have willingly given us their time to share their stories, to share inspiration to this community.
Don’t forget that we are also celebrating by giving away our first eBook for free! 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.
