Things sure do look new around here, don’t they? New colours, new logo, and of course, a new podcast title: Your Brilliant Difference Podcast with Finka Jerkovic.  

Welcome to the first episode! I’m so excited to kickstart my new podcast journey by giving you an inside scoop into the Your Brilliant Difference philosophy and how it enhances personal and professional growth.  

For 25+ years working in the sales and leadership sectors of financial services, I always felt like I had to change who I was to emulate my worth. Like I was a square peg trying to fit into a circle. After a scary wakeup call (listen to the episode for details), I realized I didn’t have to change at all. In fact, being my most authentic self provides my team and clients the most value. And the same goes for you!
