Know your True North

by Ayodeji Balogun, CEO AFEX

Know your location in relation to the Earth’s center.

Also, we can read it to mean, know your purpose, and how far away you are from it.

Getting into School

I was online and saw an advert, it said “THNK”, we remove the ego in innovation. I could connect with it, and I loved it! I signed up, it was just a few clicks.

I have always believed that if you are the smartest in every room you are, then you are in the wrong room.

I enjoyed great mentorship, coaching, and built great relationships.

Applying the Lessons

2019 was as much my Story as it was my AFEX story. As leaders, until you heal what hurts you, you bleed on people that did not cut you. We have to find harmony with ourselves to be able to lead effectively.
