I had the pleasure of sitting down with Hannah Young who is a Lifestyle Consultant and Business Strategist. We talked about the first time she tasted success and what success means to her. Here is what she had to say:
When was the first time you tasted success Hannah?
I was 17, and I entered a world-wide contest with the company TOMS to win a trip to Peru to put shoes on shoe-less children. I had to get the most votes in order to win, and after 4 weeks of grueling campaigning, including getting on the news, in the newspaper, and being all over the internet, I got the most votes in this world-wide contest and won. It taught me that SUCCESS looks like hard work paying off so you can change the lives of others.
It taught me that it takes a community of people passionate about your mission in order to get the results you want in your business, and it taught me that ANYTHING is possible if you want it bad enough- you have to decide to make it happen. I have applied this to my life and business ever since and have built a 6-figure agency/consultancy with these principles.
I can’t imagine how you felt when you won, congrats! So, why do you want to be successful and what’s your ultimate vision of success for yourself?
I believe that nothing is off limits. My vision of success is enjoying every experience and desire that I want and helping others do the same. Success is making a HUGE positive impact while enjoying all of the fruits of your labor. I plan on buying my parents a beach house in Charleston, SC within the next 10 years, and building a legacy my kids and grandkids will know be proud of.
I want to spread my message to millions, change the course of culture, and be a household name for lifestyle design so that people are deeply aware of their power to create exactly the kind of life they want. THAT is success to me, and I will stop at nothing until it happens. You heard it here first. Watch me.
I appreciate you for sharing your amazing story Hannah. Do you have any last words of advice for readers at home?
Don’t stop until you get what you want. Nothing is off limits. Make a plan, then make it happen.
