In episode 3 of the Podcast, you'll be hearing from Annette Sym who is an international author, speaker and publisher at Symply Too Good To Be True. Annette has lived on the coast for 24 years and through her business she has sold over 4 million books. That's right, 4 million. While we covered a lot of ground in 30 minutes, my one key takeaway is that to create success you need to be doing something you love. Something that gets you raring to get out of bed every morning. I think Annette has found just that.
