Alicia Curtis - WWO Podcast Episode 41
GIVE BACK TO GO FORWARD
This week on the show I am delighted to sit down with the beautiful, energetic and forward thinker Alicia Curtis. Alicia is a business owner, heavily involved in non-for-profit organisations and finalist in this year’s Western Australian of the Year Business Award.
I asked Alicia on the show to discuss her perspective of developing young leaders and more particularly, inspiring a rise in diverse youth filled boardrooms.
Alicia’s specific question was:
“Educator and Revolutionary are not words commonly associated with a generation still feeling their way through this ever-changing world. What provides you with the confidence to know if you inspire, transform and facilitate the youth, they will influence humanity toward the positive changes we need?”
We spoke about her beginnings in the business world and why she ignored the naysayers to pursue what felt right to her. Alicia offers a well thought out perspective that people should be cautious to purely follow their ‘passion’, as it is as (if not more) important to pursue character strengths in combination with what brings fulfillment.
A thoroughly enjoyable conversation with plenty to be taught.
Enjoy the show.
