I read a brilliant tweet by EDUpreneur Ana Lorena Fabrega of “Synthesis School”.

She writes “Fitting in pays off in school.

Standing Out pays off in the real world.

Read these 2 lines again and digest them.

Next, Reflect on them with the following question.

“Are you fitting in – in the sea of similar sounding distributors or advisors?”


Are you standing out?

Simply saying – I am standing out does not help much. 

Ask yourself “How am I standing out in the real world?
