Since starting ‘Cooking Up a Storm’, I have personally seen the benefit of listening to other people’s success stories has had on me. I have always been someone that learns from the example of others and then in turn try things out for myself and see where I can get to. Hopefully the episodes of the ‘Industry Series’ so far have been beneficial to those in construction, civil engineering and utilities. As for the ‘Inspirational Series’ this has been a personal interest of mine as it has allowed me to speak with people I’ve known for ages in a deeper fashion so as I can get to know their levels of motivation, and it has been truly inspiring.

Here’s a brief overview on the episodes so far and a link to where you can find them.

Episode 1 (Industry Series) – Dannie Shipkova | Cooking Up a Storm
