The Highs and Lows of Entrepreneurship, Losing It All, Starting Over and Surviving Colon Cancer with Richard Lau (#068)

The Highs and Lows of Entrepreneurship, Losing It All, Starting Over and Surviving Colon Cancer with Richard Lau (#068)

April 8, 2021

Being an entrepreneurship may sound attractive, but it isn't easy.

Many people go in it with dreams of great success and freedom, but it doesn't always work out as they hoped. 

There is no straight line to success. And as Richard Lau says in this episode, it's not a matter of if, but when, life will punch you in the face. What makes the difference is how you respond to those punches when they come.

Being a serial entrepreneur, Richard has had to take his fair share of punches. Some people may have given up, but Richard saw each know down as an opportunity start over using the lessons he's learnt from the challenges he faced.

Now the founder of logo.com, 20 years ago at just 30 years old, Richard had the month from hell. As a result of a hack on his business which wiped his customer records, and a dramatic move by a competitor, Richard was put back to square one financially and if that wasn't bad enough, a diagnosis of colon cancer that doctors believed was terminal followed it up.

Thankfully, Richard survived to tell the story, and you can listen to it here.

Using Hypnosis to Overcome Fears and Limitations with Doug Sands (#067)

Using Hypnosis to Overcome Fears and Limitations with Doug Sands (#067)

April 1, 2021

When you hear the word hypnosis, what's the first thought that comes to mind?

If you're like me, it may be memories of audience members of Saturday night TV shows running around the stage and clucking like chickens.

But there is far more to hypnosis than making a few willing volunteers look silly on TV.

In this episode I explore how hypnosis can be used as a powerful process to help us overcome our deepest fears and limitations, and free us to pursue and achieve our dreams.

If something is holding you back, perhaps hypnosis could hold the answer to setting you free!

Doug Sands is a hypnotist who works with mental illness. He runs Anywhere Hypnosis, an online hypnosis practice that helps clients worldwide work through anxiety, depression, and more.

Doug is also the host of the Making Meaning podcast, where he interviews top adventurers about the struggles they've overcome to build their ideal life.

Social Entrepreneurship, the Future of Capitalism with Tony Loyd (#065)

Social Entrepreneurship, the Future of Capitalism with Tony Loyd (#065)

March 17, 2021

Are making money and doing good mutually exclusive?

I don't believe so, and neither does my guest on this episode, Tony Loyd.

Could the future of capitalism be social entrepreneurialism and social enterprise? A new model where the benefits of free enterprise meet the world of doing good?

Not for profit organisations certainly have their place when it comes to short-term solutions to issues, but their long-term effectiveness relies on continuous fund-raising.

Social enterprise on the other hand, can have a positive impact in the way it sources, produces and sells its products or services from the materials it uses, the waste it creates and the way it treats people.

Following a period of feeling unfulfilled, Tony left his high-flying corporate position with zero notice to pursue a life of purpose and meaning.

That decision has led him to help many people pursue their dreams, speak on the TEDx stage and host a top podcast.

If you want to pursue a life of more meaning, fulfilment and impact, this is a great place to start.

From Job-Seeker to LinkedIn Influencer, and Overcoming Imposter Syndrome with David Alto (#064)

From Job-Seeker to LinkedIn Influencer, and Overcoming Imposter Syndrome with David Alto (#064)

March 9, 2021

Imposter Syndrome is something most of us experience at some point in our lives. It can prevent us from pursuing our dreams by preventing us from putting ourselves out there. It can creep up on us when we take a promotion. It can even appear in our personal lives.

We seem to fall into the trap of thinking everyone else has everything figured out, and we somehow don't know what we're doing, or we don't know enough to be doing what we're doing.

The funny thing is that many of us are all feeling this at the same time, so we're definitely not alone.

The best way to break through this fear is to take action.

In this episode, I speak with David Alto who went from job-seeker to coach and LinkedIn expert which required him to face his own Imposter Syndrome head on.

David now helps job-seekers beat the bots, master LinkedIn and land their dream job.

Four Steps to Effective Copywriting with Rachel Allen (#063)

March 2, 2021

You may have a great product or service, but if you're unable to communicate it effectively to your audience or ideal customer, you're not going to see the results you deserve.

The bridge between what is in your head and your audience is copywriting. And in the episode I talk with expert copywriter, Rachel Allen about how to avoid common mistakes and the four steps to effective copywriting.

We also discuss her somewhat accidental path to entrepreneurialism after pursuing the traditional employee path. Rachel had to learn how to step away from what society told her she should be doing (standard 9-5 job) and what she actually wanted to do. (Run her own businesses and travel all over the world.) 

Not only is Rachel an expert copywriter, she's also a great guest. We had a lot of fun recording this conversation, and I'm sure you will enjoy listening.

Rachel Allen is the owner of Bolt from the Blue Copywriting and Noun Meet Verb, a ghostwriting agency for thought-leaders-in-waiting.

Through her work in industries from accounting to astrology, she’s helped people all over the world use their words to generate massive impact, influence, and income. Ultimately, all her work is in service of one simple mission: to build the words that bring great ideas into reality, so they can have a tangible impact and move the global conversation forward.
