Most successful leaders are extremely optimistic and inspiring. These traits are imbibed in Zoe Share the Canadian CEO of Daddy’s Digest. “All our dreams can come true if we dare to pursue them” – Walt Disney. Successful people are not just gifted; they work hard, then succeed on purpose. These brilliant business minds set up a business or an organization by taking risks.
Zoe is an ambitious businesswoman who believes that communication and collaboration can start a positive conversation and impact values-based businesses’ bottom lines. Growing up she always wanted to be a teacher. “I loved to read and write, and I thought I would be a teacher during the year and write books over the summer holidays,” she states. That was her choice until she found that teaching was not the right path for me. In partnership with Founder, Vickram Agarwal, she strives to leave an impact on the DD audience – driving change in the conversation and creating voices for all parents.
Self-belief And Hardwork Always Earn You Success
Zoe thinks success is important, but not necessarily the traditional definition of success. She also believes with success, you need to set your goals, your boundaries and set the narrative for your day. “Then the question becomes, was I successful in fulfilling what’s important to me? Taking care of myself was not always a priority, but it has become a major part of my success journey since becoming a mom while running a business,” she states.
Setbacks are a vital part of growth. Challenges are an opportunity to develop and be culpable to staying on the side of positivity. It certainly is more difficult to consistently take this attitude, but it’s not impossible. Having young children during the covid pandemic as a female entrepreneur pushed Zoe to ask herself questions about her priorities and her wellness. She wouldn’t call these setbacks, though, she calls them parts of her journey that helped her get to a clearer and happier future.
