What Advice Would You Give To Your 20-Year Old Self ?

Here our latest Game Changers take a moment to reflect and reveal what advice they’d give their 20-year old selves. For each person, the message is different. For Erin Sing from Modern Currency, it’s all about not being afraid and being “happy with who you are”. Lisa Andrews from SingularityU encourages you to put your “dreams out to the world” with PGA Advisory’s Michael Mancuso adding that you mustn’t take “life too seriously”.

Dreams are important, so says Sipora app founder Jonathan who recommends dreaming big with the reminder that you “have a lot of time”, so don’t rush. Realising your dream means stepping out of your comfort zone, and in order to do that, MDPC Global founder Anne McKevitt asserts that you need to have “real-world experiences”. On your journey, you will meet many people, but remember that “there are more good people in the world than bad”; Christina Gerakiteys urges you to “find them and make them your tribe”.
