At Rock Your Life we wish to acknowledge stunning members of our Circle of Excellence and have decided to do so by putting together a Hall of Fame where every December the board of Rock Your Life get together and vote on our members who have been exceptional during the year. The categories one can be nominated under are:
- Excellence – this means they have significantly improved their business and their life. It could include revenue increases, asset increases or simply living one’s passions to the maximum and reflecting that to the world.
- Innovation – This means developing something that is unique, perhaps world changing, maybe green technology, perhaps sustainable, maybe disruptive technology that turns an industry on its head
- Contribution – This is clearly the way and manner in which this individual contributes to the world at large. How they play a bigger game, involving social contribution, charity work or work of a non profit basis.
In 2014 we are proud to induct the following people into the Rock your Life Hall of Fame.
