2023 was a transformative year.
2023 was a transformative year for both David and Donni. They reflect on their experiences and the growth they achieved during this time. David shares that 2022 was a challenging year for him mentally, as he struggled to feel complete and fulfilled. However, in 2023, he made a conscious effort to prioritize himself and his well-being. He learned to say yes to what he wanted and no to everything else. This shift in mindset allowed him to approach his work with a Beyonce-level work ethic and show up in a major way.
On the other hand, he describes his 2023 as lackadaisical. While he accomplished some cool things, he feels that he didn't fully seize the opportunities that came his way. He admits to coasting and not grabbing certain opportunities by the horns. However, he also acknowledges the successes he had, such as hosting the first podcast summit and starting the Hot Seat, which is doing well. He is now in mogul mode, where he is able to create situations based on his intellect and ideas, rather than solely relying on his effort.
Both David and Donni express their excitement for the upcoming year and the new opportunities it holds. They discuss the importance of focusing on building their own brands and finding ways to benefit themselves in their business endeavors. They recognize that while highlighting others has been a successful strategy for them, it's time to put more effort into their personal brands. They want to create something that is not solely dependent on their brand and allows them to do business in different ways.
Overall, 2023 was a transformative year for David and Donni. They learned the importance of prioritizing themselves, working with intention, and seizing opportunities. They are both eager to continue their growth and success in the coming year.
