I love Game Changers – not just the CNN program, but people who step out of their comfort zone to contribute to the improvement of society. ‘Interview with …’ showcases these everyday people who have to work hard on themselves first, before they can have an impact on the lives of others in society.
In my relatively short sojourn on terra firma, I have come across quite a few of these boys and girls, men and women who, despite all the challenges thrown at them, find the time and courage to effect change and transform the lives of many.
My very first interview was with internet rising star Annetta Powell in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA a few years ago. It was not pre-arranged hence the quality of the video and interview but I thought I’d feature it here to encourage recovering perfectionists like myself, not to wait for the perfect ‘storm’ to get things done: start with what you have and build up slowly. I try to practice what I preach. The operative word here is ‘try’. It doesn’t cost you anything to have a go; but could cost you a lot if you don’t.
