Episode 3.11 - Personal Pride
Show Notes

When going against the grain, we engage uncertainty and test ourselves. Yet rewards are never guaranteed. We flourish in the moment because the action, the risk, the ambition connects us with the possibility of meaningful achievement and a deeper sense of personal pride in what we do, and critically who we are.

In this episode, tune into Munir Mamujee and learn about his ‘never say die’ attitude and the personal pride he acquired through keeping his company afloat in the most difficult of Covid times.

By listening to this show you’ll discover how pride weaves its way into entrepreneurial life. From taking risks and motivating teams to expanding business horizons and being recognised for achievement, this episode is an enjoyable ride exploring key facets of personal pride.
