Today, Polkadot PR is a public relations agency with an expert team of employees who are multi-skilled across all media platforms.

However, one day, her life almost came to a halt, when she was walking home after a few drinks and dinner with friends. As an asthmatic she remembered she needed to take her ventolin. And so, as she took in one large inhale, she suddenly found herself choking…she couldn’t breathe, something was stuck in her throat. She prepared herself mentally, that this was it.

Her ‘Life Changing Moment’ occurred when her father passed away suddenly. Sarah and her dad were really close and spoke every day.

In a round of interviews for her first job in economic media she was given ten minutes to prepare a ten minute presentation. She was petrified. She didn't have any qualifications for the job and everyone else in the room seemed so much smarter and better equipped. She spent five of those ten minutes in the bathroom with her handbag in her hands deliberating whether to pull out and go home. But she chose to stay and it changed her life.

Out of hundreds that applied for the job and a gruelling round of interviews in two capital European cities she was one of four people to get the job, and the only woman.

Meet Diva Diaz, Access Consciousness® facilitator and international speaker, Diva has worked for Forbes, The Economist, Le Monde, The Washington Post, and later business intelligence.

Raz Chan is an award winning author, coach, martial arts champion and expert on maximising human potential. Raz is on a mission to help foster human excellence in youth around the world so that they can realise their dreams.

His life lessons in determination, will power, and resilience began in 1979 at the age of 10 when his father lost the family savings to bankruptcy. Money was scarce for many years and sacrificing a normal childhood was expected for the greater good of the family. Raz spent the majority of his childhood working 14 hour days alongside his father, mother and siblings to help make a living. Home life was turbulent and he was bullied at school.

Listen to Raz and I have a chat about his Life Changing Moment: Overcoming the adversity of family bankruptcy and school bullying.
