You are in the right place IF YOU'VE EVER ASKED YOURSELF:

"How am I supposed to figure out what my passion is?"

"How can I start feeling at peace with myself while figuring out my next best move?"

"How do I create a life where I make a positive impact on the world while still making good money?"

About Hiwote Getaneh

The concept of success has always eluded me. At one point, I thought it was a place in life where I would finally feel like I had arrived. Most of the time though, I thought success was the result of a life spent working really hard. I also assumed that this place was also where happiness and inner peace lived. I was wrong.

I spent most of my twenties trying to achieve all the wealth, accomplishments, and accolades I could amasse because I thought it would lead to success. Here is a snippet of how I tried to achieve it.

By 22, I graduated with a degree in Biochemistry

By 23, I lived in my own adorable apartment in New York City

By 24, I made a great salary working at a job I hated

By 25, I was a public policy graduate student at Johns Hopkins University

By 26, I had started by own blog

By 27, I was graduating from Hopkins with 3.9 GPA

Externally, I was hitting all of the metrics of success, but internally, I felt insecure, unhappy, and I never lived in the moment. It was through this painful time in my life that Depth & Candor was born.

I created Depth & Candor in 2015 to help people like me, who wanted to live a genuinely happy life; defining internal and external success for themselves, and attaining it with joy, grace and ease. Today, Depth & Candor is my deepest form of service to the world. 

I live in constant gratitude that my journey led me to the first place where I know I belong.
