Doing the deep work, with Edina De Jong-Hodzic
Doing the deep work, with Edina De Jong-Hodzic16/07/2019

We often think that we’re working up to a big change, that the hard part is making that change happen. So we spend years planning how we’re going to leave our job with the hope that, once it finally happens, we’ll be living the life of our dreams.

But the more I talk to you guys and reflect on the brilliant gambles I’ve taken, the more I realise that that’s only the start of the journey. What happens in the first 6-24 months of that new life is actually the biggest challenge because we’ve made the physical changes but now we have to evolve as people.

When Edina De Jong-Hodzic became a mum it was a wake up call for her and although she didn’t leave her corporate job immediately a series of events made it clear to her that her future lay outside the corporate 9-5. And THAT’s when the real journey of change begun.

Edina describes herself as a creator, inspirer and mother. In 2017 after 12+ years of corporate career Edina realized she wasn’t fulfilled with the definition of corporate career and decided to resign from her corporate job. She embarked on a journey of entrepreneurship which led to a deep and meaningful journey of self-realization which was initiated through her new role as mother.

During this journey she redefined what success means for her and embraced a new way of holistic living that is centered around authentic connection, growth, simplicity and creating impact. Edina’s company DiversFYI supports both leaders and organisations to create and implement a Sustainable Diversity Strategy (diversity = the sum of uniqueness of each individual) across the entire organisation creating sustainable growth for both people & the business. Her unique holistic approach combines Mind-Body-Heart-Soul methods and tools.

In this interview we talk about:

  • The journey that Edina has been on
  • Discovering who she is and what success means for her
  • Exploring this critical parallel journey that occurs when you really embrace life outside the corporate 9-5.

You can find out more about Edina, follow her blog and connect with her on her website and via LInkedIn.
