Notable CEO Julian Brass Shares the Secrets to Young Professional Success

Yesterday, Notable CEO Julian Brass went on CTV to talk about the Quebec Notable Awards (happening tonight!)

But what he ended up sharing we felt was more than worth re-sharing with all of you.

‘Cause at we spend our time focusing on what makes young, driven, and passionate Canadians successful.

We do this 24/7. In fact, it’s all we do.

For the past six years we’ve spent our waking hours (and many of those when we probably should have been sleeping) dedicated to highlighting the young professionals that are doing so much with their lives in this country.

4. Balance
They understand that living a balanced life is imperative to finding true success.  Without a life of mental, physical, and spiritual balance they realize they won’t have the energy and capacity to succeed.

5. Self-Actualization
