DeeDee Trotter is a whirlwind….

I was fortunate to be able to spend a couple of days with her in Tokyo during the spring of 2018 and it was a real learning experience.

She made a champion of herself coming from an environment where failure is almost a given, She overcame in many ways but for me it is really the mental part which is impressive. She speaks of using pressure as power and having a generally goal focused and positive attitude in a way that there is just no way that you can tell she is wrong.

Her talks are fantastic and if you ever get the opportunity to see one I strongly recommend doing it. I will not give any spoilers here should you ever find yourself in this situation.

A journey starts with heart and finishes with death as in “The End”. Between that we have bullet trains, countryside trees, city light, strong curry and lots of people lined up in front of a stage.

It was a real trip DeeDee and I enjoyed every bit of it!
