What I've learnt from 3 years of Be Diddy...

1. A year can change EVERYTHING. But change is good. 2. Adapt and evolve... If somethings not working change it, that's the beauty of doing your own thing. If it's not serving you let it go 3.

But also be motivated...If I don't do something no one else will, maybe this should be the year I hire someone, anyone fancy it? Big yourself up, tell people what you do and why it's amazing.
