Naturally: My number one goal is and has always been to Qualify as a CA.SA which is what I am currently still studying and striving towards. To have my own style empire and still be able to remain loving towards others and be loved."
What is success? "Success to me is working hard, sacrificing on what you want to obtain no matter the amount of effort you have to put in. Working with the end in mind to carry you through the rocky road. I do however think it's the feeling you have when you are able to sit back and just be amazed at the end product or the result of your works. Accepting the rewards of your hours of perspiration."
What success have you achieved? "I was awarded as the best youth leaders/mentors at the church I belong to in 2014.

I have already reached the point of absolutely loving what I am doing."

Leigh's Road To Success: Name: Leigh van den Berg Occupation: "I'm a fashion and beauty editor as well as a freelance copywriter, scriptwriter and writer in general. I also have a blog but don't see that as an occupation. It's more like the world's most time consuming creative outlet." Goals: "To be happy." What is success? "To me 'success' is achieving your goals so I reckon if I can do all the things that will ultimately make me happy I'll have succeeded." What success have you achieved? "Like I said, I feel 'success' is connected to creating a happier life for myself. One way in which I planned to do that in 2015 was to be more careful with my time. This saw me consciously turning down work and blog-related invites that I felt wouldn't offer me a rewarding enough trade exchange in favour of spending more time with the people I love. While it sounds silly, for a time-poor workaholic like me, this was a big deal." What success do you want to achieve? "My to-do list is huge and ranges from silly things like finding the perfect pair of black block heel boots before winter kicks in and big things like buying my first property. Wish me luck!"

Hazel's Road To Success: Name: Hazel Jane Occupation: Account Executive Goals: "My ultimate goal is to be happy." What is success? "I actually measure success by happiness. I feel that money or stats, although great, don't personally constitute success for me. Instead, all I want is to be happy and when I get to the stage where I'm really happy with my life... that's when I'll be truly successful." What success have you achieved? "I've had a few notable successes, including studying up to degree level and getting a full time job within months of graduating. I value falling in love as a success too, as it has made me happy, as well as keeping important, strong relationships with friends and family." What success do you want to achieve? "I still have a few things I need to change before I get to my ultimate success goal of being happy. I would like to take my blog to the next level, for instance." All the best on your road to success Hazel...
