Ruby’s top tips for success 

  • We only get one deck of cards. How we play them is up to us.
  • Only you have the power to break your thinking habits
  • Practise how to pay attention and give your true concentration – people know when you’re not paying attention and a real connection with people is key
  • We work like ‘neural Wi-Fi’. We are all connected. Fix yourself, then go and save the world
  • Stay curious, learning at any age is important
  • Be genuine– people can sense lack of authenticity
  • Don’t be afraid to show your flaws, it helps us connect as human beings
  • We can age like wine, or like vinegar – the choice is ours!
